O'Connor seeks contributions

Ohio Supreme Court justice-elect Maureen O'Connor's campaign has sent out about 1,000 letters seeking contributions to retire a $120,000 debt.

In the letter, Pamela Hashem, the campaign's fiance director, said the campaign went over budget in late October when it bought extra TV time to counteract ads aired by O'Connor's opponent, Hamilton County Municipal Judge Tim Black.

Mark Weaver, O'Connor campaign spokesman, said the letter went out to people who previously had donated to O'Connor and other Republicans. Hashem said the solicitation also might have gone to lobbyists who represent previous donors.

Judicial canons restrict judges to raising money only during their election year and up to 120 days after the election. That means O'Connor has until March 5 to raise the $120,000, or vendors who are owed money will have to wait six years when she is up for re-election and can raise more money, Weaver said.
