Look who's lining up and for why ? Proctor and Gamble for one. The must want to let more pollution go into the Ohio River. When we know they do it all the time . Kasich is such a fool. He acts like he is a Emperor ! One case in point is we have a National Holiday coming know as Martin Luther King's Day on Monday ! It'll be interesting how many Blacks show up and how many is on the Stage with the Emperor. We've seen what they did to Mike Steele savvy ! What I've been reading around the State the Blacks aren't too happy with our EMPEROR !!

Former Gov. Ted Strickland, who voluntarily limited donations to his inaugural committee to $25,000 after he was elected in 2006, raised nearly $2 million from more than 2,800 contributions from individuals and corporations in 32 states.

Strickland took in more money and bigger donations but non of you pathetic whiners even remember that, it was not a story because Strictland did what all governors did, took donations. None of you whined before and you know it.

Naturally, y'all demanded the same information from Strickland and raised the roof about the preferential treatment the teachers, unions, and trial lawyers got after they paid for his even more expensive "transition"?

Who cares, the people donated it for the inauguration, not the unemployed.

Kasich says he wants to save the state money, but he is going to spend thousands maybe million dollars to add security to his residence. I wonder when he isn't reelected will he give it all back. I hope before he starts cutting state employees he looks real hard at all the fat we have in management in all departments. It seems when they cut they always cut at the bottom. This is the ones that do all the work. I have seen supervisors making 70-75 thousand per year supervising 1or2 people. This is happening all over the state. In some cases the ones they're supervising are making 50-65 thousand per year. Making that kind of money they should be managing them selves.

Just another reason the Columbus Dispatch loves John Kasuck. He will give them daily more and more to write about !!
If the paper really wants to inform the General Taxpaying Public grow some &^%$ and print the name of everyone who contributed and then compare to the "benefits" they will reap from the most corrupt administration Ohio will ever see.
Like this, you mean?

There will be payback for those 121 "companies" that donated. There always is. Why is the Dispatch not listing them. The public has a right to know.

And he gave all that was left over to a FOODBANK!

Where is Kasichs left overs going?

And who donated the money? We know who gave to Strickland. It is in the archives. Who gave to Kasich? Why all the secrecy around this guy?

You can't defend him just as you can't polish a turd.

Kasich is a big tool. He will promote and give priority to all his big corporate buddies lining their pockets with fringe benefits and plenty of money.

The families he and his administration are going to hurt the most are the everyday common people who are just trying to raise their families and survive. He is going to lay off or decrease the salaries of the civil service people who work hard for the State of Ohio. Therefore, causing more unemployment and struggle.

My thanks to all employees of the State of Ohio for your hard work and dedication to your jobs. Stay Strong, stay united.

For those who didn't notice jrutecki posted the link to the full list of donors.

http://www.dispatchpolitics.com/live/content/...

Strickland limited his donations to $25,000 each, while Kasich was limited to $10,000. So did Strickland's donors get 2 1/2 times as many rewards? Most of the donors got seats at one of the inaugural events. So they paid to have nice table. Gov kasich has complied with reporting requirements, where else would Dispatch get all their facts?
Come on folks, give the guy a chance. He can't be any worse that Teddie Boy who left us with a debt of $8-9 billion. Thats $8-$9,000,000,000. And now he has moved on to a high paying job in Washington. I gues that makes him a Washington St Democrat. And he doesn't have any Federal limits to what he collects now.
Gov Kasich elected to not use the Governor's Mansion in Bexely. He will continue living in his own house and drive back and forth to Office. That way his children can continue to go to same school. Besides he won't be accused of keeping Ohio Prisoner Slaves at the Governor's mansion like Teddie Boy did. I guess that makes it harder to pass on lies about that. So now all teh liberals are accusing him of spending millions on home security. Well many other Ohio Officials have had security systems installed at residence. And Ohio Law requires Ohio State Patrol to provide protection. A security system allows the patrol to use less people to provide the protection.
I guess it doesn't matter what people read about Gov Kasich, the liberals will find something to complain about. And why do they still believe that if they tell a lie often enough people will believe it? I don't. Like the Security System at his residence. The first complaints said it would cost $10,000, now some posters here have inflated that value to $1 million. There they go again, telling lies.

And before he gave the leftover to the food bank, he took in contributions up to 25K from many of the same groups Kasich got his money from and you whiners had no problem with it.
