Corporate money flowing in Ohio

By Doug Published: September 23, 2010

The Columbus Dispatch reported this week that following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in January that opened the door to corporate campaign contributions, Cincinnati billionaire Carl Lindner was able to help Ohio U.S. Senate candidate Rob Portman with a great deal more money. Prior to the ruling, Lindner personally was limited to $4,800. However, after the ruling, Lindner's American Financial Group was able to give 83 times that amount, or $400,000, to a group backing the Republican's campaign - although the group says Lindner's cash wasn't specifically earmarked for pro-Portman efforts.
