ONUMBA.COM, USA – When it comes to the investigations over the allegations that Columbus City Council President Democrat Andrew Ginther was part of bribery activities involving one of the companies that installed red-light cameras in the city, a number of things are no longer in question: the god-awful cameras have been removed, the contract with the company RedFlex terminated and the investigation deepening. But what is not so certain yet is how much, if at all, any of this is hurting Ginther’s campaign for mayor. Since he announced his candidacy, Ginther has been seen by many as a shoo-in to win the mayoral race and replace outgoing Mayor Michael Coleman, who ironically, is also grappling with his own burgeoning mess over an unrelated allegations that he sold his pricey pad located in the Columbus Berwick neighborhood to a Chinese business woman who was also looking to do business with the city. Coleman, a very popular mayor, is stepping down at the end of the year after a historic 16 years in office. He has endorsed Ginther for mayor, an imprimatur that carries heavy weight. But with all of this playing out, and with the mayor’s backing more important now than ever, is this investigation going to wreck Ginther’s campaign or at least give his opponent Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott a modicum of chance to wage a respectable battle and possibly win?
