GOP seeks records from Democrat in governor's race

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Republican Party is taking Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald to court, trying to force him to release key-card data showing when he enters and leaves county buildings and parking facilities as the Cuyahoga County executive.

The Wednesday filing asks the Ohio Supreme Court to compel the data's release as public record.

A FitzGerald campaign spokeswoman calls it a political stunt and says Republicans and Gov. John Kasich should focus on real issues that matter to residents.

Democrats have suggested FitzGerald's refusal to provide the records is similar to the Kasich administration's decision to block release of records detailing threats against the governor, because both involve a government leader's security.

The Supreme Court is weighing a challenge brought by a Democratic-leaning political blog over the threat records.
