History votes in favor of this claim
"Our race was the closest U.S. Senate race in Ohio in 36 years -- when Howard Metzenbaum defeated Robert Taft in 1976."
Ultimately paid with late penalties and interest
Sherrod Brown "failed to pay his own taxes three separate times."
Career spans eight presidents
Sherrod Brown "has been running for public office since Richard Nixon was president."
Disclosure aims to dodge trip wires
Ilana Shafran Mandel’s stake in Forest City Enterprises "constitutes significantly less than 1 percent" of the company’s shares and any implication of a conflict of interest "is legally incorrect."
His medals back up his claim
"Decorated Marine, two-tour Iraq war vet."
