its the way it goes in Ohio. When the Rs control the state, you see charges like these get levied. When the Ds get voted into control, you see these same lawsuits targeted at the opposition.

Not saying its right, or the actions of the individuals being charged are right; just making an observation of my many years here in Ohio.
