Ohio treasurer Josh Mandel returns money under investigation
CANTON, Ohio - Ohio treasurer and U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel has returned $105,000 in campaign donations that are under federal investigation.
Mandel's campaign sent a letter this week to the Suarez Corporation Industries near Canton saying the money was returned to 21 employees of the direct-marketing firm.

1. "There! I gave it back to them! Happy now?"
"So let's just stop all this unseemly investigating, all right?"
Reading the story, you might get the impression that the office of treasurer in Ohio is non-partisan. You have to look around pretty carefully to establish Mr. Mandel's party affiliation. And yes, it's exactly what you think it is.
