Opponents to Oakwood Rezoning Use Deceptive Campaign Practices
“Front Group” Funds Campaign, Distributes Misleading Materials
SOUTH EUCLID, OHIO (October 31, 2011) – South Euclid voters have received mailers from agroup that claims to be affiliated with the prestigious FactCheck.org, a non-profit, non-partisanconsumer advocacy organization affiliated with the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania.In fact, there is no connection between this “sneaky front group” and FactCheck.org, accordingto a statement posted on FactCheck.org by Director Brooks Jackson. “But the fact is we have nothing todo with ‘SouthEuclidFactCheck.org’ and don’t endorse the statements that group is making in mailersand on a website… What we find most objectionable, however, is for any group to use a name thatimplies it is associated with us when it’s not, especially when its true identity and sources of funding aredeliberately hidden. That’s the very definition of a front group. We hope the voters of South Euclid,Ohio, are not deceived.”“No on 96” opposes Issue 96, which is on the ballot in South Euclid to uphold rezoning theformer Oakwood Country Club property to allow for commercial development. The Ohio CampaignFinance Report filed by the “No on 96” committee lists a $25,000 donation from “Ohio Fact Check” withthe address of attorney Donald McTigue in Columbus. Jackson said his organization was “able to trackdown and contact an Ohio election-law attorney, Donald McTigue, who told us that he had recentlyincorporated ‘Ohio Fact Check’ as a tax-exempt advocacy group. But he told us by telephone that hecould not tell us who his client is or give any information without first obtaining permission. We alsocould find no corporate registration with the Ohio Secretary of State for any group calling itself ‘OhioFact Check’ or ‘FactCheck.’”-- more --
