Senate Candidate Booted For Disrupting School Board

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports:

U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel was escorted out of a Butler County school board meeting Monday evening after school officials said he staged an event to “disrupt a public meeting.”

Mandel, a Republican from the Cleveland area, is running in a crowded primary to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Rob Portman. He paints himself as a fighter who isn’t afraid to disrupt the status quo and often uses social media as a platform for misinformation and controversial statements that attract attention.

“Forcing kids to wear masks in schools is a total trampling of the freedom and liberty of the kids and the parents,” he said in an interview on Tuesday. “It is not the role of a school official or politician to tell moms and dads how to raise their kids.”
