Ohioans, Don't Be Fooled By Sherrod Brown's "Early April Fools"

Columbus, Ohio – Sherrod Brown tried an interesting new tactic today to distract voters from the fact that it has been 1,065 days since he and his Senate Democrat colleagues last passed a budget.

Brown sent a press release this afternoon accusing his opponent of “lying about Senate Dems not passing a budget”.

Then, Brown inexplicably tried to cite a PolitiFact article as proof. But the article confirms that: “Indeed, the last time the Senate passed a budget resolution was in 2009 for the 2010 fiscal year, according to a report on the budget process by the Congressional Research Service.”

“We were scratching our heads until we looked at the calendar and realized that this must be Sherrod Brown’s early April Fool's joke on the people of Ohio,” said Travis Considine. “Well, we’re not laughing, because all this twisted new tactic shows us is that the arrogance of two decades in Washington, where politicians still expect people to believe every mistruth they say, has finally caught up to Sherrod Brown.”
