The Republican nominee for Ohio's U.S. Senate seat, Josh Mandel, is being sued by a liberal political blog over his state office's refusal to release records.
Mandel, the state treasurer, is being sued by Plunderbund over what the blog says is a denial of public records requested from the office, the Columbus DIspatch reports. According to papers filed with the Ohio Supreme Court, Plunderbund had requested a list of records requests from Mandel's office by other organizations, including detailed information on what had been requested. After a delay of several months, Mandel's office provided a list of 56 requests for public records. Plunderbund made the same request of the state's other constitutional officers -- all Republican -- who complied.
