Dems Say Ohio Supreme Court Candidate Pat DeWine Has Conflict Of Interest

Court News Ohio

Democrats say Republican appeals court judge Pat DeWine faces a monumental conflict of interest if elected to the Ohio Supreme Court next month because his father is Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.  

The party says Pat DeWine of the First District Court of Appeals would have to frequently step down since his father's office often has cases before the court.  Pat DeWine and his supporters disagree strongly and say he received assurances from the top staffer for the Supreme Court's judicial ethics board as soon as his father was elected that no such conflict existed as long as his father wasn't in court.
