COAST "Tweets" Case featured on "The Take Away"

COAST Treasurer Mark W. Miller gives a compelling interview about the COAST v. Ohio Elections Commission "Tweets" case here to "The Takeaway," a national radio program produced by the New York Times ("be careful what you tweet").  It's a good listen.

This same case was featured Tuesday in an important piece in the print edition of the New York Times.  Read that here.

COAST was the victim of two Ohio Elections Commissions' cases in which Robert Richardson and Cincinnatians for Progress attempted to smear him and COAST for claimed false statements relating to the Cincinnati Streetcar.

After an inquisition by the seers at the Ohio Elections Commission, they ruled that there was not even "probable cause" that COAST had made a false statement.  (Thank you oh, great arbiters of truth on the Elections Commission, for ruling that we could have free speech in this limited instance, after the fact.  We appreciate this mercy this one time for our "free" speech activities.)

COAST and Miller have sued the OEC in federal Court (in two different cases actually).  Read more about that here.

  1. Just because the Ethics Commision didn't fill suit doesn't change the fact that Miller is lying and continues to lie daily on Twitter.
