Ad invokes spurious Chinese invasion of Ohio to try to head off HB 6 referendum: editorial
"As cleveland.com’s Jeremy Pelzer reports, this could be just the opening salvo in a likely spending spree to protect the nuclear bailout, should the issue get on the ballot.
But what is the evidence to support the ad’s alarmist rhetoric about a Chinese invasion?
Ohioans for Energy Security, the group behind the ads, cites the fact that Ohio natural gas plants built or being built by entrepreneur Bill Siderewicz -- one of those behind the anti-HB-6 referendum effort -- have Chinese investment money (yes, along with private U.S., British, and French money and equity from Australian and Germany firms, as well).
That’s not exactly the same as an invasion."
