Auditor: Mahoning County GOP illegally spent money on booze

Published: Thu, June 10, 2010 @ 11:54 a.m.

The Mahoning County Republican Party “illegally” spent $60 on alcoholic beverages, according to a review by the Ohio auditor of the party’s financial records.

The party paid for alcoholic beverages for a joint fundraiser with the Trumbull County Republican Party last year at the Avalon Country Club at Squaw Creek in Vienna for both of their restricted funds, said Mark Munroe, Mahoning Republican chairman.

The event featured John Kasich, the Republican candidate for governor, he said.

The party isn’t permitted under state law to use money from its restricted account — which goes toward party operations — to purchase alcoholic beverages.

After being told by the auditor’s office about the finding for recovery, the party wrote a check on April 26 from its general campaign account to its restricted account.

A month ago, the auditor’s office issued a $145 finding for recovery against the Mahoning County Democratic Party for the same violation.

I'd have to drink at least $60 worth of alcohol to put up with those crazy liberals, too.

So if a liberal does something wrong its "ANARCHY" but its ok to allow the GOP to act a fool and steal? Hmmmmmmm sounds like Bushian politics to me.
