In a strange move, Ohio Supreme Court Justice Pat DeWine has now recused himself – very late in the process – from the ECOT case. After hearing oral arguments and presumably participating in discussions regarding a decision, Justice DeWine bows out. Typically, if justices determine they cannot be impartial in a case, they recuse themselves before the case is heard.

    Political candidates who received ECOT (Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow) money now want ECOT's hide, but the Ohio Legislature refuses to regulate the charter industry. In spite of the political posturing regarding the ECOT farce, the Legislature has failed to tighten regulations sufficient to prevent another ECOT-type scandal.

    Ohio attorney general and gubernatorial candidate Mike DeWine has faced mounting criticism over the past few weeks about how he and his office conducted a sexual harassment investigation into House Minority Leader Bill Seitz.

    Legislators in charge of the Ohio Statehouse have responded to the ECOT scandal by passing half-baked accountability legislation that the charter lobby supports. On June 27, the Legislature had an opportunity to force charters to be totally honest in student accounting for payment purposes but kicked the can down the road.

    Somebody whose first act in our country is to defy our laws cannot be trusted to obey the rest of them. Nobody is above the law. Southern Ohioans made it clear in the 2016 election that we support fortifying our border against crimes, and Republicans are fulfilling their promises to do so.

    I am angry at our state legislature. Both the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate voted to have medical marijuana legalized in Ohio, and Governor Kasich signed the bill. This was right after the voters turned down the proposal of legalizing marijuana. How did they miss the message of the voters? This seemed to have passed quickly and easily. We didn’t even get to vote on it.

    I've been working to have conversations with prospective candidates about their support for measures that would lessen the stranglehold of partisanship on the electoral process. For example: Would they support independents being represented on the Boards of Election in each county?

    On June 8, the Columbus Dispatch published a column by Denis Smith, a former consultant in the Ohio Department of Education's charter school office, about the Ohio Public Records Law and a May 2 request sent to two charter school sponsors by Ohio E&A and the state education agency for records pertaining to the Gulen charter school chain operating in Ohio. After five weeks, there has been no response from ODE.

    The reality of the who-gets-the-credit question is that state officials should get NO credit. Public school advocates, whistleblowers and the media exposed ECOT. State officials got involved only after it became apparent that they would be held accountable for not getting involved.
