OHIO GOLF PICKING UP ON FENCE POSTING?
OHIO’S GOVERNMENT has posted a fence post on the post office route of the post-office, which the state has long argued should be shut down.
The post office is not part of the state’s jurisdiction, but the Ohio Lottery posted a message on Facebook Sunday that it was responding to a letter from the Ohio Department of Transportation.
“As the Department of Revenue, OHIO is obligated to comply with state laws regarding the conduct of lottery ticket sales.
We are aware that the Department is currently conducting its response to our letter,” the post said.
The department said it has contacted the Ohio Attorney General and asked for assistance in responding to the letter.
“The Department of Justice has opened an investigation into the issue.
As a result of this investigation, we are taking additional steps to address this issue as soon as possible,” the department said.
“If you are an Ohio resident, you should contact the Department immediately and let them know that this is an ongoing issue.”
The post said the state is also offering up to $250,000 in cash to anyone who can identify the person who posted the message.
Ohio Lottery spokeswoman Lauren D’Orazio said she was unaware of the investigation into how to respond to the fence post.
“We do not know the source of the message and we do not have any further information,” she said.
“It’s not something we can comment on right now, so we will have to talk to our partners at the Attorney General’s office.”
Ohio’s legislature last month passed a bill to close the post offices for a year, but that bill has been stalled in the Senate.
