Cleveland, OH - Conservative outsider Mike Gibbons today filed suit in the Court of Common Pleas in Cuyahoga County against Jim Renacci for Renacci's false statements and defamation. Renacci has repeatedly advertised lies and falsehoods about Gibbons and his position on the issues.
The suit notes that Renacci's actions were done with knowledge of their falsity and with reckless disregard. Contrary to Renacci's false statements, Mike Gibbons is a rock-solid conservative, pro-life and a steadfast supporter of President Trump.
Renacci has falsely stated that Gibbons is anti-Trump. Nothing could be further from the truth. Gibbons in fact raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help elect the President and interviewed for a job in the Trump administration. Renacci also lies about Gibbon's pro-life beliefs. Gibbons has stated repeatedly that he is pro-life and would vote accordingly in Washington.
The suit states "By stating as fact that Gibbons admitted he was not a conservative, and that he described himself as ideologically flexible, when Gibbons in fact never made such statements, and Renacci identified no factual basis for Gibbons having made those statements, Renacci publicly stated as fact materially false information with knowledge of its falsity or with reckless disregard as to its falsity.... The identified statements and others like it are patently false and defamatory per se. Continued publication will result in irreparable harm to Gibbons’ reputation as an honest, trustworthy, pro-life, conservative candidate and supporter of President Trump. "
Voters are tired of professional politicians like Jim Renacci who will say and do anything to get elected. Today, Mike Gibbons said enough of the professional politicians.
