October 30, 2018
As the clock winds down to Election Day, we’re taking a look back at the lowlights of Congressman Jim Renacci’s Senate bid – a campaign that’s been defined by embarrassing stories, despicable lows, and complaints from Republicans that Renacci never “even picked up the towel.”
Today we’re taking a look at the shady straw donor scheme Congressman Renacci used to move $26,700 between accounts during his failed gubernatorial campaign.
Be sure to continue following along for the final week of this election as we count down to the end of Congressman Renacci’s pathetic political career.
In April, the Cincinnati Enquirer revealed that during his 2017 campaign for governor, Congressman Jim Renacci used a straw donor scheme to funnel $26,700 from his congressional campaign account to his gubernatorial campaign in an attempt to evade Ohio campaign finance restrictions.
