Attempts at Voter Shaming in Ohio 12th House Race

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Fliers sent to addresses of some individual voters in Ohio's 12th Congressional District amount to attempted voter intimidation and embarrassment. That's how one voter feels, who has received inkjet-printed fliers detailing her adult children's voting records.

"They're these little survey things they send to people telling them how often that they voted over the past few elections. They were sent to my kids, who are 19 and 21."

Beth Cerda, of Delaware, says the fliers have been sent from both conservative- and liberal-based political action committees, or PACs.

"It's a graphic and it says that it's their official voting record," Cerda says, describing the flier her son Ben received. "Which elections they did or did not vote in, and it starts back in 2010 all the way to 2016. In 2010, he was 13."

"What it accomplished to me is bringing out the mama bear in me because you're messing with my cubs. Why are you doing this, because I didn't get one, and my husband didn't get one," she said.
