The Akron Beacon Journal editorialized on Ohio Senate candidate Josh Mandel’s campaign tactics:
What Democrats have been reminding Mandel is that his establishing a campaign committee in early April set the clock ticking. He had 30 days to file a personal financial disclosure report with the Federal Election Commission. Four months later, he still hasn’t complied with the requirement.
What amounted to the usual short-sheeting and towel-snapping by partisan adversaries cannot be dismissed so easily as the days and weeks mount.
What is Mandel thinking?
The form hardly poses an endurance test. He filed similar documents with the Ohio Joint Legislative Ethics Committee during his brief tenure as a representative. Why give Democrats more time to beat their pots and pans, inviting all kinds of speculation, from Mandel trying to hide something to that he won’t run at all?
