GOP Ohio Senate Nominee Had Cops Shut Down Local Roads So He Could Test-Drive His $2.3M Luxury Import

The Heartland Signal reports:

In 2015, Ohio Republican Senate candidate Bernie Moreno used taxpayer dollars to shut down local roads so he could take a joy ride in an Aston Martin car that he purchased for $2.3 million.

Video from shows at least three police cars blocking traffic in the Cleveland suburb of North Olmsted so Moreno could privately use the roads in his luxury Aston Martin Vulcan, which his dealership would later list for $3.4 million.

In a separate video from 2016, Moreno admits that he had the vehicle shipped to the United States in parts to avoid Environmental Protection Agency emissions restrictions on foreign vehicle imports. Moreno also japed, “Nobody’s here is from the EPA, right?”

Moreno first appeared here in January 2024 when it was reported that he had shredded documents related to a wage theft lawsuits brought by former employees.

That same month we also heard from him when he deleted multiple posts in which he had castigated Trump as “fake” and “hateful.”

In March 2024, he appeared at an Ohio rally for Trump where he declared that one of the great things about going to heaven will be meeting the signers of the Declaration of Independence such as Abraham Lincoln, who was born 33 years later.
