Secrets of 2000 Election Funding Revealed

Faced with a $25,000 fine per day for non-compliance with a November order issued by the Franklin County Common Pleas Court, the Citizens for a Strong Ohio released a list of contributors to a very controversial campaign waged against SupremeCourt of Ohio Justice Alice Robie Resnick. Leading contributor was the Ohio Chamber of Commerce at $200,000, followed by the American Insurance Association at $185,000. The Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce also kicked in $25,000, with ten other corporations, mostly banks and insurance companies, combining to give $1 million.
