What a Small World

From the Columbus Dispatch today:

A Franklin County judge yesterday declined to fine the Ohio Chamber of Commerce or order the release of any new details about its political fund raising in the unsuccessful 2000 campaign to defeat Supreme Court Justice Alice Robie Resnick.

Columbus lawyer Clifford O. Arnebeck had asked that the Ohio chamber itemize its $200,000 share of $4.2 million in contributions to a negative television ad campaign. One ad showed a justice peeking from behind a blindfold as bags of cash were dumped on her desk.

You remember Resnick, she was last seen staggering along I-75.

You also remember Arnebeck, he was last seen filing lawsuits challenging the 2004 election results.

It just makes you think the Ohio Chamber of Commerce wants to take out a big "We told you so" ad.
