Sen./Rep. Grendell's staunch conservative values
STATE SEN. TIM GRENDELL may have set an impossibly high standard for other pols who boast of their core conservative values. You have probably read about the Chesterland Republican's sleight-of-ballot by winning an Ohio House seat in November and then telling the voters that on second thought, he'd rather remain in the Senate for the next two years. He explained his flip-flop by saying that the candidate who might replace him in the Senate didn't share his conservative values. Until now, I hadn't considered that reneging on your own election was a conservative value. But Grendell had become an icon of the Tea Partyers in the last campaign so we all have something to learn about any kind of values when he's around.
