The Proof Jean Schmidt was Larry Householder’s Puppet

I have been accused of whining about Jean Schmidt and “not living in the real world.” In fact when I filed three complaints against Jean Schmidt et al with the Ohio Elections Commission last Friday Barry Bennett responded to a local paper by saying: “He (Noy) doesn’t live in the real world,” he said. “He’s taking a real risk entering into the legal system. There are real repercussions for people that file false accusations.”

My response to Mr. Bennett is:

(1) Since “no body lives there” (reference made by Nixguy towards Pike, Scioto, Adams, and Brown Counties regarding McEwen’s victory in the May primary) it does not surprise me that Mr. Bennett does not consider Pike County the “real world.” I can assure him that I am very much grounded in the reality of the issues that face not only the voters in the four rural counties but all of OH-2.
(2) Mr. Bennett should have checked my bio before firing off a comment about me “entering into the legal system.” I’ve been here since I was representing indigent defendants back in 1997 (although I did take a few years off from the arena) when I obtained my law degree.
(3) I agree that there are in fact “real repercussions” for those who file frivolous claims, something I did not do in this case. However, what Mr. Bennett will soon find out this there are even harsher “real repercussions” for people who not only break the law, but actually commit elections falsification by fabricating excuses to the OEC under sworn testimony (like he did back in April.)
(4) I will be filing three more complaints tomorrow to bring the grand total to six. The most-nasty one for Jean and her crew is the fact that I have the 1989 Clermont Sun that included “the candidate’s responses” and Jean listed “two college degrees.” Oops! In April and May they continued to break ORC 3517.21 when they went on TV and claimed it was a “web developer’s mistake.” The same lie they told to the OEC. Unless Al Gore and Jean had the same web developer in 1989 I think that charade is over.

Now the topic of the post. Check out this WCPO I-Team report from April 2002:

The above details how the Householder scheme worked and names some of the people he recruited. This is captured in a taped conversation from Chief of Staff Brett Buerck for the Ohio Speaker of the House Rep. Larry Householder when he tried to strong arm poor Doug Mink out of the ’02 primary. It includes:

“13:18 So, that's how are relationship with Jim Raussen originated. It's no different than our relationship with some other State Reps in the area. You may know now, like a Jean Schmidt, like a Tom Raga in Warren County and the Speaker went on the road all throughout the winter and the summer of 1999. 13:42 Got folks to run on what essentially was you know, kind of a Team Householder platform and then 13:50 my company started working with these individuals we ran their races and on Primary Day of 2000 we won 26 of the 28 races we were involved in.”

I hate to toss Raga’s name in with this, but the evidence is the evidence. Perhaps Ken needs to find another running mate?

By the way the OEC has delayed the probable cause hearing until 9:00am on August 24. I was more than happy to waive the time period required given the magic date involved for the hearing.

As I have been saying all along:

Proverbs 20:17 "Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel."

John 8:32 "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Not All Blogs on the Internet are what they seem to be: the TRUTH about Project Logic

Project Logic – is it Really Jean Schmidt’s 2nd Website?; and the PROOF Kephas was a paid Schmidt Campaign staffer in 2005

Although the SOB has a strict policy of not allowing “campaign websites” into its mists it appears Eric Kephas has had his hand in the proverbial kitty for quite some time now.

Ever wonder why Eric comes off a little strong in support of Jean? Well it’s not just because she set him up with a nice little kickback with a paid internship in her Portsmouth office this past January. Check out the FEC website at and information obtained from the reports her campaign committee filed last year:

Candidate Name: Schmidt for Congress Committee

Also check out some of Eric’s archives:

He uses an archive titled “October 2000” to store some of her campaign rhetoric:

He also was one of the first to endorse her on 4/26/05:

Read through some of his other posts and pay attention to the tone, then compare some of what Jean has said in public to what Eric was written. In fact, Eric may be one of Jean’s script writers, too bad for him the truth has been exposed and this gig is up, now it’s time to answer to the OEC and FEC and Jean will have to answer to U.S. House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct as well.

Since Eric is on the Scioto County Republican Central Committee serving in his 2nd Term and since he was a PAID Staffer for the Schmidt Campaign Committee and since he endorsed her last year, I would hope that he at once resigns from the Scioto County Republican Central Committee to save the Party any embarrassment. Shame on you Eric!

By the way if you are wondering what tipped me off it was the simple response I received from Eric when I sent him the below e-mail back on July 21:

Thanks but no thanks.

I know you are on the R Committee and you see yourself as having a duty to support and protect Jean. However, I hope you have taken the time to review the questions for her I have posted at:

I also have a copy of the depo she gave as testimony and it does not look good at all for her. After everything comes out I'd hope that you and I could meet, I realize you have a duty to keep, but if you knew everything I do about Jean you may second guess your blind faith in her.


Proverbs 20:17
"Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel."

John 8:32
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

For the record I asked the State of Ohio Blogger Alliance of membership recently and was rejected because I am engaged in a campaign. So I want to pose an open question to them:

Matt: Are you kicking Project Logic out of the SOB? Or are you letting me in? Or are you really a liberal and doing neither?

Peace and God Bless,
