    Robert Owens (CP-OH) Files Ethics Complaint Against Democrat Opponent

    Robert Owens has filed an ethics complaint against his Democrat opponent for AG. Here is the story from Owens’ website:


    Cordray Campaign Finance Antics Nothing New

    Robert M. Owens, candidate for the office of Attorney General of Ohio, issues the following in the wake of an Ohio Elections Commission complaint which he has filed against current Attorney General Richard Cordray.

    “My opponent, Rich Cordray, looks to be engaging in potentially illegal actions in relation to campaign finance laws,” stated candidate Owens. “Perhaps we will see another major campaign finance and ethics conviction associated with the Cordray campaign, similar to his dealings with Montford Will in the 2008 cycle.”

    According to Owens’ Ohio Elections Commission complaint, Cordray transferred over $750,000 from his 2008 campaign balance to state and county Democratic Party organizations in an apparent effort to skirt Ohio’s “excess funds” law, which will not allow more than $200,000 to be transferred from one race to another. Should the Ohio Elections Commission find Cordray in violation of this Ohio campaign law, the penalty includes Cordray being removed from the ballot. Cordray is the Ohio Democratic Party candidate for Attorney General in this November’s general election.

    “Again, Rich Cordray wants to skirt Ohio’s laws. First, I exposed the pay-to-play situation between him and banker Montford Will while Cordray was state treasurer; now I am exposing another instance of where money is more important than staying within the law” noted Owens. “My candidacy focuses on integrity and accuracy, qualities I believe Ohio voters want and deserve, and which I believe I will best be able to deliver as Ohio’s next Attorney General.”

    Owens, Ohio Constitution Party candidate for Attorney General, is a practicing attorney in Delaware, Ohio. His campaign has received endorsements from the Ohio Tea Party PAC, Family First PAC, the Ohio Coalition of Concerned Black Citizens, along with numerous county organization endorsements. His campaign information can be accessed at http://www.OwensforOhio.com/ .

    Ohio Tea Party PAC Endorses in Ohio Attorney General Race

    September 28, 2010 – Cincinnati, OH


    Robert Owens, Constitution Party candidate for Ohio Attorney General, becomes the first statewide candidate to receive an endorsement from Ohio Tea Party PAC in a general election.

    Requiring a 7/8ths majority of voting members, endorsement from Ohio Tea Party PAC makes a strong statement about support for Robert Owens amongst tea party and liberty groups throughout Ohio.

    All Ohio Liberty Council member groups may have a representative vote for their organization vote on Ohio Tea Party PAC endorsements, and with over 50 groups represented on the Ohio Liberty Council – an Ohio Tea Party PAC endorsement is quite an accomplishment for any statewide candidate.

    “We are proud to stand with Robert Owens in his campaign to bring a strong sense of liberty minded principles to the Ohio Attorney General’s office. We know that in keeping with his responsibility to uphold the law for Ohio citizens, he will pursue an agenda consistent with our belief system rather than those of his two major party opponents.

    In contrast to the history of this office, we fully expect Mr. Owens to prosecute corruption and avoid frivolous lawsuits. This is still an office that serves the people of Ohio, not a personal agenda,” said Chris Littleton, President of the Ohio Liberty Council and Cincinnati Tea Party.

    To inform their decision, Ohio Tea Party PAC requested candidates complete a survey addressing a wide variety of topics designed to flush out philosophy and approach to elected office. Survey found here: http://www.ohioteapartypac.com/Candidate_Survey.html

    Several other races around the state are being evaluated for endorsement with announcements being made over the next 2 weeks. All endorsed candidates can be found at Ohio Tea Party PAC

    Cordray cash-stashing complaint revived


    Columbus Dispatch
    October 1, 2010


    Republicans dropped their complaint accusing Attorney General Richard Cordray of illegal maneuvers with his campaign funds. But that didn't stop Robert Owens, the Constitution Party candidate, from pushing the issue anew.

    Owens, who ran against Cordray in 2008, announced today that he's filing a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission accusing the Democrat of "clearly using fraud in campaign finance."

    Owens' complaint reprises a since-abandoned claim by two county Republican Party organizations that Cordray skirted Ohio campaign-finance laws by shifting hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic Party organizations, who later donated similar amounts to Cordray's campaign.

    A month ago, the Republican Party organizations in Franklin and Summit counties dropped their complaint without explanation.

    Owens didn't refer to the abandoned Republican complaint in announcing his own.

    "We are holding him to account," Owens said.

    Cordray's campaign declined to comment today.
