Just weeks after he shamefully compared Republicans to Nazis and the Holocaust, Richard Cordray is now hypocritically decrying ‘poor tones’ and ‘divisiveness’ in politics.
At last night’s Ohio gubernatorial debate, Cordray claimed that he wants to show respect for his opponents while emphasizing the “the right tones in our campaigns.”
But that’s different rhetoric from just a few weeks ago. Cordray was caught on video claiming that the tone of the White House was “like Nazi Germany” just days after another video reported by The Cincinnati Enquirer showed him likening local Ohio Republicans to Nazi collaborators. Cordray has refused to apologize for his reckless statements despite repeated calls – even by World War II veterans – for him to do so.
Cordray’s empty words about tone don’t match his actions on the campaign trail. He has proven to be nothing more than a hypocritical politician who can’t be trusted to lead Ohio.
