Chillicothe election law complaint
(2007-11-06)
(WOUB) - The Ohio Elections Commission is moving ahead with a complaint of election law violations in the Chillicothe Mayoral race.

Mayor Joe Sulzer, a Democrat, filed the complaint last week against his Republican challenger Diane Carnes.

Sulzer alleges that a Carnes campaign brochure misleads voters about contributions to Sulzer's campaign by an engineering company and a contract awarded to that company by the city while Sulzer was mayor.

Yesterday, a committee of the Ohio Elections Commission found there is probable cause that Carnes violated an election law and has scheduled a full commission hearing for a later date.
