(HAMILTON)- In response to Speaker Pelosi’s announcement that the U.S. House of Representatives would enter into a formal impeachment inquiry over President Trump, Butler County Democratic Party Chair Brian Hester issued the following statement:
“Every Member of Congress and the United States Senate begins every term swearing an oath the Constitution, not a President or a political party. With ten separate incidents of obstruction of justice in the Mueller report and now the latest intelligence whistleblower report about the President and Ukraine, I applaud the House for undertaking its solemn constitutional duty to hold a lawless President publicly accountable. I hope Ohio Republicans put country above party and hold Trump to the same standard they had for President Clinton.”
What Ohio Republicans have said in the past about the standard for impeachment:
(HAMILTON-) The Butler County Democratic Party’s Executive Committee Saturday unanimously endorsed and agreed to support a number of candidates running for nonpartisan offices in the upcoming November 5, 2019 Gene
(HAMILTON)- On June 20th, House Bill 297 was introduced in the Ohio House of Representatives. State Representative Candice Keller (R-Middletown) was among its list of co-sponsors, even though the sole purpose of the legislation is to create state funding via a refundable tax credit for donations to organizations of which State Rep. Keller currently serves as an Executive Director and draws a salary.
According to every financial disclosure Keller has filed since first being a candidate for State Representative in 2015 with the Joint Legislative Ethics Committee, Keller has reported receiving a salary somewhere between $50,000 and $99,000 a year as the Executive Director of a community crisis pregnancy center. This salary would be in the same range as what she also already collects as a State legislator. The median household income in Middletown is $39,116 a year.
