Schmidt’s “Memory Loss” a Cause of Concern for Ohio Voters

Schmidt’s “Memory Loss” a Cause of Concern for Ohio Voters

West Union, OH

Recently sworn testimony given by Congresswoman Jean Schmidt last April in defense of her fake college degree case in the Ohio Elections Commission made its way to the Internet (http://i.gleeson.us/gb/0609/schmidt_deposition.pdf ) and many voters have begun asking how someone the Cincinnati Enquirer endorsed as having a “file card memory” could possibly remember so little about critical events in her life.

Ohio Second Congressional District independent write-in candidate Nate Noy who recently brought the now infamous “Photogate” case to the Ohio Elections Commission had this to share: “Schmidt’s sworn deposition provides keen insight into the memory of our ‘esteemed’ Congresswoman. While on the campaign trail I have been sharing Ms. Schmidt’s sworn testimony with likely voters, and all are shocked that the only ‘file cards’ Ms. Schmidt appears to remember are the ones her script writers provide her.”

Noy went on to provide some specific examples from Schmidt’s testimony and share an additional concern: “What really concerns me is not only Ms. Schmidt’s loss of memory but also her elitist attitude towards the voters that comes through loud and clear to anyone that takes a view minutes to review her testimony.”

Some of the questions that led to Noy’s concerns and Schmidt’s responses are provided below.
