The blowback from John Kasich’s despicable attempt to misrepresent the words of a great-grandmother who opposes the union-busting SB5 law continued this week, as Kasich refused to denounce the ad masterminded by his own chief-of-staff.

Here’s a sampling of the headlines generated by this new low in political manipulation:
