Ohio prosecutor probes Kasich critic



Published: Fri, February 15, 2013 @ 10:12 a.m.

LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio prosecutor says a school superintendent is under investigation for possible misuse of public resources for political campaigning.

Franklin City Schools Superintendent Arnol Elam wrote a letter to parents urging them to join a campaign to make sure Gov. John Kasich and legislators supporting him aren’t re-elected. Elam is among school officials in some of the state’s poorer districts upset about the Republican governor’s new school funding plan.

Elam says his district’s state funding remains flat, while wealthier neighboring districts get more money.

Warren County prosecutor David Fornshell says Elam might have crossed a legal line by using school resources for campaign purposes. Elam tells The Dayton Daily News his purpose was informative, not political.

Ohio’s Democratic Party blasted the Republican prosecutor’s move as intimidation.

Elam should have siphoned off taxpayer money and set up a private business, run by a friend of his, to distribute that information. Funding private enterprises with taxpayer money, and denying any accountability for said funding, is OK, apparently.
