COLUMBUS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Legal experts took aim recently at the drug companies’ devious scheme to
mask their role in the campaign to defeat Ohio’s Issue 2 ballot measure.
“Certainly, setting up an LLC to launder drug company money into
fighting the ballot measure looks like an effort to evade Ohio’s
[campaign finance] transparency and disclosure laws,” said Brendan
Fischer, a director at the nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center. Issue 2
will save Ohio taxpayers up to $536 million a year in drug purchasing
costs, and it is hotly opposed by the drug industry.
Background on Ohio Ballot Issue 2
The Yes on Issue 2 campaign is a broad-based, bi-partisan coalition.
More than 200,000 Ohio voters signed petitions to put an amendment on
the ballot in November that will lower drug prices for over 4 million
Ohioans, including 164,000 children, save taxpayers $400 million
annually, reduce healthcare costs for everyone and teach greedy drug
companies and their CEOs a lesson.
