DeWine is in big trouble these days. Desperate people do desperate things...

Greg Sargent :

GOP Senator Mike DeWine's campaign is refusing to say whether a soldier appearing in one of the campaign's political ads is an actor or a real member of the military. The ad -- which ran roughly in the last week of September and the first week of October and is right here -- pictures family members of soldiers praising DeWine. For about three seconds, what appears to be an actual soldier is visible in uniform. But Defense Department spokesperson Stewart Upton has now told Election Central that "all military personnel...are prohibited from wearing military uniforms at political campaign or election events." Upton viewed the ad, and said that he'd "forwarded this matter over to the Army for review."
