Today starts the final chapter of "Grendell Gate." The last pages of the story will be written in fall 2012.
The Plain Dealer, over at their website, covered the fact that the Ohio House Republican Caucus picked Rep. Richard Hollington to serve in the OH-98 seat State Sen. Tim Grendell did not take.
Grendell did the right thing. In a nut shell, Sen Grendell stopped the shady Taxn' Trustee Chris Galloway from scheming his way to the State Senate. Even though the news papers did not cover this aspect--Grendell's decision was in large part to stop Taxn' Trustee Chris Galloway from sliming OH-18, Lake and Geaugua County.
Can one feel bad for Taxn' Trustee Galloway? No. Can one feel bad for the local party chairmen that stood by and watched Galloway work for the Ohio Democrat Party? No.
In summary, Taxn' Trustee Galloway is a paid Ohio Democrat Party Operative (according to public records) that is responsible for unseating a republican judge (Colleen O'toole).
Back to Sen. Grendell. Sen. Grendell has been a prolific author lately, for instance, in disseminating court records disparaging Trustee Matt Lynch's problems with his tax bill. Sen. Grendell was condemned by the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee. That's a joke. That's the same group that paid Taxn' Trustee Galloway at the same time he worked for the Ohio Democrat Party...AND...allows Bob Bennett to hold office. That's right, Bob Bennett. The same Bob Bennett that was the ORP chairman and BIG fund raiser for Democrat Frank Jackson.
Back to Grendell again....there's back story here!
So how will the final pages of "Grendell Gate" read? Richard Hollington won't dare face Grendell in a primary in 2012. No way, no how. That means Tim Grendell will return to the Ohio House of Representatives in 2012.
