1. Unfortunate news reports of unpaid taxes owed to the state of Ohio and to the IRS

in the hundreds of thousands by Sen. Kearney and his wife, Jan-Michele Lemon Kearney, have surfaced in the last few days.
Some of taxes are in dispute, and, apparently, the FitzGerald campaign was aware of at least some of the problem.
IMO, this will be something shouted loud and long by the Kasich campaign.
The amount of damage it will do to the Democratic ticket should be assesses, and, if necessary, perhaps Sen. Kearney should step aside.

Too bad, since Kearney has much to offer, but, sometimes, these problems cannot be overlooked politically.
