Rep. Jim Renacci's Senate campaign issued a news release late Thursday that he said depicted an unnamed woman's story of an "unwanted and sudden advance" from Sen. Sherrod Brown in the late 1980s.
The release includes a lengthy statement from Laura Mills, a Canton attorney and former Renacci business partner and political donor. In the statement, Mills says the woman told her friend about the encounter as the MeToo movement unfolded. It occurred while the woman was alone with Brown, who was divorced at the time, through her work, Mills said. The friend then contacted the Renacci campaign, which referred the woman to Mills, the statement says.
The statement does not provide a date, a location, supporting evidence or identify the woman, but describes her as "a very credible source and a professional woman." It comes a day after Renacci told reporters and editors with the Cincinnati Enquirer that he'd heard from "multiple women" with abuse allegations against Brown, while providing no additional details or supporting evidence.

Women must be believed, unless the person accused is a democRat. Then absolute proof is required.
These sins of indiscretion are of no concern to the media if the perpetrator is a democrat.
Didnt some lib columnist state that a lack of details actually meant MORE credibility?
Most conservatives were disgusted by the Kavanaugh allegations. I dont think they are going to be ok with that game being played by our side.
I think this backfires on Renacci.
LS says he is within 2-3....but this reeks of desperation.
I think this backfires on Renacci.
I agree, unless this woman comes forward with proof. If not, it is not going to turn out well for Renacci.
I’ve finally reached that point: No bruises or no police report contemporaneous with the event, then I don’t care. Human beings are sexual creatures. Much of this stuff we’re hearing about is how it’s done.
I’m officially numb to it.
Even then, it will be passed off as unimportant.. "it's only sex".
Given the chaotic experiences of juvenile coupling, none of us would dare run for office on the off chance that someone, somewhere would "remember" an "unwanted advance".
I remember taking a very nice young women out on a date towards the end of high school and as we left her parent's driveway, the passenger side seat on the old station wagon collapsed back to the prone position and she - now flat on her back - said "this isn't going to be THAT kind of date, is it?" and we both laughed.
Today that sort of episode, viewed through the lens of aggrieved womanhood. would likely bar me from any (Republican) public life.
I would say, ‘Don’t go there’... I think Renacci can win without that s&^t.
We don’t need to descend to the level of desperate, Liberal morons.
Wait, the media is doubting these women? But, but but those are the exact circumstances around Ford/Kavanaugh so according to the media and the entire dem world she MUST be believed. Brown wasnt even a teenager
Agree...it does reek of desperation.
Renacci has run an awful campaign, letting Sherrod Brown and his PACs frame him very negatively. These allegations should've come out as soon as that started, not because the allegations from so long ago should be part of it, but for the hypocrisy issue. This would've been really effective if it had been brought up very soon after Senator Brown was "outraged" by the probably bogus claims against Kavanaugh as a teenager.
I don't have a clue what happened to Renacci. He was an effective spokesman for the Deplorables in the HOR.
Sorry, dont care which direction it comes from or goes to.
KNOCK IT OFF!
You got an unwanted advance? You poor thing.
So why are we hearing about this now?
This should be the attack mode on EVERY single DemoKKKrat.
Wouldn’t surprise me if there are bombs coming on Testicles, Manchin-on-a-Hill, and Donnelly. (He’s gonna be gone, so won’t give him a nickname).
Ugh. In my mind he just lowered himself.
“An un-named woman told her college roommate, who told a cafeteria worker, who passed it on to her live-in boyfriend who then relayed it to his dog’s veterinarian (the dog confirmed this), who told one of his other clients (a cat owner) who happened to be an attorney working for the opposing political candidate...”
Maybe there was a payment from that congressional slush fund to deal with this event...
The Ohio GOP (under direction of Pig Puke) hasn’t given him any money. He is sunk.
