I was astounded to read Aftab Pureval suggest Congressman Steve Chabot has been “missing in action” on local infrastructure improvements. Upon reflection, however, it’s not difficult to see why Pureval is sinking to uninformed, scurrilous attacks. After all, he’s only been in office a year, he isn’t from Cincinnati, and he’s only lived in the 1st Congressional District a couple weeks.
Still, Aftab’s ignorance, even when mixed with a strong dose of ambition and inexperience, is a poor excuse for relying on deceptive, inaccurate attacks. And so, I thought I’d offer Pureval a history lesson, in hopes that he might learn to do his homework.
