Subj: Ohio Chamber reneges on commitment to produce names of contributors
After the hearing I asked and was assured by Linda Woggon in the presence of Brad Smith that the she would send the information to me. I served subpoenas for the information when I did not receive anything. Brad then called me and said that they would have the material by 2:00 pm, or 3:00 at the latest. At 3:30 a delivery person arrived at my office with a motion to quash our subpoenas.
The Chamber has returned to a policy of secrecy after four election cycles in which it published the names of its contributors to influence candidate elections.
