Columbus – Americans for Prosperity Ohio is calling today for all ads misrepresenting the group’s efforts on Issue 6 to be pulled from the air immediately.  The ads are being placed by the pro-levy group, the Committee for the 2014 Columbus Zoo Levy.

“In light of yesterday’s Ohio Elections Commission ruling of NO PROBABLE CAUSE, we ask that these ads referencing our efforts and falsely labeling them as ‘misleading’ be removed from the air immediately,” said Eli Miller, Americans for Prosperity Ohio State Director.  “It’s time to pull the plug on these ads. The residents of Franklin County should decide whether to support this permanent property tax increase for the zoo based on the merits, not the misleading statements aimed at our organization within a television ad.”
