We want to help Josh Mandel out. Yep you heard that right.
Now that he's recently been awarded his record fifth Pants On Fire designation from PolitiFact, we want to lend Josh a hand and spare the public on either side from more Pants on Fires.
We're asking all seasoned fact checkers to forward your resume to www.progressohio.org. We will then do the honorable thing by forwarding all aspiring fact checkers to Mr. Mandel's team.
Why We're Seeking to Help
At ProgressOhio we believe that Ohioans should be told the truth by candidates, especially current elected officials. Sure a misfire once in a while is one thing. But it's frightening to think that the person elected to manage and distribute our state's money has been called out by his hometown newspaper so often. So let's give him some help.
If you can't change behavior, help modify it. So offer to help Josh Mandel out. Apply to be a fact-checker. Let's give Plain Dealer reporters a respite on PolitiFact Ohio.
