Building a Better Ohio shamelessly stole Cincinnati great-grandmother Marlene Quinn's words and then manipulated footage to misrepresent her stance on Issue 2. The despicable move by a desperate campaign marks a new low, and we can't let it stand.
Marlene sent us a note about their outrageous ad:
"I think it's dishonest and downright deceitful that they would use footage of me to try to play tricks and fool voters. It's insulting to the brave firefighters that saved the lives of my grandson and my great-granddaughter Zoey.
I'm outraged. They did not ask my permission. I feel violated.
I want to stop Senate Bill 5. Everyone should vote No on Issue 2.”
We need to make sure Marlene's true words ring out loud and clear.
Sign the petition and let the television stations and the Building a Better Ohio campaign know: This ad is a new low, and MUST be taken down immediately.
