The Plain Dealer's open blog just posted a story about Lt Gov. Lee Fisher. The premiss of the story is that Lee Fisher blabbers on and on about Ohio jobs, but is using a Seattle law firm for his legal work. The story fails to point out that half of Lee Fisher's work as Lt Gov. was SUPPOSED to be shepherding the Ohio Department of Development.
That's right! Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher served as Director of the ODD up until tax cheat, political appointee Mark Barbash was tapped to take over. Mark Barbash took over the Director's job at the ODD when Fisher officially announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate. Mark Barbash resigned as ODD director when it came to light he owed the IRS $146, 000...and that the IRS put a lien on his home.
Back to the original point. Lee Fisher once SUPPOSEDLY spent half his time promoting jobs growth in Ohio. However, Fisher uses a Seattle based law firm for his campaign's legal work.
