More or less. Here’s Scott Pullins’ open letter to Bob Bennett, pleading with him to get outta here:
Dear Mr. Bennett:
Will you do Ohio Republicans a huge favor and please resign from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections? Heck, you should have never been appointed to the seat in the first place.
Did you really need the $21,000 per year in salary? You are already making over 200k a year as party chairman, before the other bennies. Wouldn’t it have made more sense to place the county chairman, or finance chairman, or executive director, or political director, or someone that was actually connected with the Cuyahoga County Republican Party?
Heck, Bob, you don’t even really live in Cleveland. Don’t you live in that sweet place in German Village that the Ohio GOP pays for every month? Bob, you held your press conference in Columbus. I have had some bad press before, but that was just dumb.
Does it really make sense to pull the Ohio GOP into a legal pissing contest because you are greedy? Is this one of the great principles that Republicans will fight Democrats over in the next couple years? So you can qualify for PERS?
Bob, for the party’s sake, what’s left of it, turn out the lights, shut the door, and call it a day. The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections is screwed up royally, and you were in charge. You never fixed it. Just resign, it’s long past due. We Republicans are about taking personal responsibility aren’t we? Aren’t we?
