Facts Don’t Add Up in Attack on Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown

Here at the NRDC Action Fund, we like to rely on facts. Unfortunately, some politicians don’t think they are nearly as important as we do. Such is the recent case of Ohio U.S. Senate Candidate Josh Mandel and his attack on pro-health Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown. Mandel, the current absentee Ohio Treasurer, accused Senator Brown of not protecting Ohioans best interest when it comes to air pollution from coal-fired power plants. Once again, Mandel’s facts just don’t add up and Politifact agreed. The bottom line is Senator Brown has Ohioans health at the forefront of his agenda. Senator Brown is key to rebuilding the environmental majority. Read what Politifact had to say about Mandel being dishonest.
