Oh those Hagans ... gotta love them.
Bullhorn Bob was term-limited out of his seat in the Ohio Statehouse, and Mrs. Hagan — Michelle Lepore-Hagan — won the seat earlier this month.
This week is "newcomer week" in Columbus for the newly elected state legislators, and Michelle was there learning.
She met Gov. Kasich at an orientation session, and apparently used Youngstown schools as a conversation starter.
Someone had already used the day’s weather, I guess.
Kasich — true to form — was blunt on his thoughts on Youngstown schools: They’re a mess and need to be overhauled.
Since it was a get-to-know-you, where-’d-you-go-to-school, do-you-have-dogs-or-cats orientation, Kasich’s comment went the way all other random comments go:
Right out on Twitter for the world to see.
The comment was one of those “John told Michelle, Michelle told Bob, Bob has too much time on his hands — and his phone, too, needed something to do. So he tweeted it.”
Kasich spokesperson Rob Nichols was funny in reacting in this Vindy article:
“Bob (Hagan) spends an unusual amount of time on Twitter.”
I wonder what the other side thinks when a classic guy like Bob leaves a place.
I wonder what they’re saying now when he’s still there as the spouse on the side, and a comment is out on Twitter barely after “Hi, how are you ...” is uttered.
