Two Faces Have I
It’s been popular lately for liberal news and entertainment programs to play inappropriate music in the background during a conservative’s appearance. If turnabout is fair play then the song that should have been playing in the background while Ex-Ohio Governor Ted Strickland gave his speech at the recent DNC Convention should have been Lou Christie’s “ Two Faces Have I.”
In his run for Governor Mr. Strickland promised to meet with the Executive Director of Ohio Association of the Security & Investigative Services and the then sitting Chairman of the Governor’s Commission to the Private Investigative and Security Industry to discuss the problems that the 270 small business owners and their 35,000 employees were having in their attempts to do business in the State of Ohio.
Of course the soon to be Governor was too busy to make the meeting but his staff falsely promised that the industries problems would be addressed by Scott North a Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur attorney who had left the firm in order to become the new Governor’s Legislative assistant. This caused the majority of the 270 small business owners to lend their support to elect Ted Strickland Governor of the State of Ohio. Many in the industry now bored a “Republicans For Strickland” bumper sticker and forwarded monetary donations to his campaign.
Well as usual, with politicians, after the election was over and Ted was elected the industry never heard from Scott North, Ted Strickland or his staff again and to add injury to insult he appointed two of the most corrupt Directors of Department of Public Safety ever to come down the pike. Two documented corrupt political cronies who did nothing but block attempts by the industry, the small businesses, to become successful and profitable. The Department’s attorney, in violation of the law, wire tapped anyone attempting to assist the industry and used the Department’s investigators to falsely pressure any dissenters the industry might have.
As mentioned Lou Christie’s “Two Face Have I” would have been great background music for Ohio’s Ex-Governor.
