Butler County Auditor Roger Reynolds goes on the offense against fellow local republicans.
He accuses them of coordinating efforts to remove him from his duly elected office and providing false information to the Ohio Supreme Court. Recently, Rogers sent an email to the Butler County GOP central committee members, Butler County Connect obtained a copy of the email. Along with the email is an audio file of a 15-minute telephone conversation. Within the business telephone conversation is there no mention of kickbacks, payoffs, or bribery.
Butler County Connect Community News did confirm with Reynolds that he did send the email and the audio attachment from his private email address.
Read the email the Central Committee Members Received:
I would like to thank everyone who has sent words of encouragement to me and my family over the past 6 months. The supportive prayers, cards, letters, texts, and phone calls have been very helpful as my family and I deal with an extraordinary assault on my character.
While this type of attack may be unprecedented for me, they have become far too common across our country the past few years. The playbook was crafted by democrats as a way to advance their left wing agenda at the expense of law abiding citizens. We’ve watched in disgust as Nick Sandmann, Kyle Rittenhouse, Donald Trump, police officers, judicial candidates, and others are demonized in the court of public opinion.
The playbook reads like this:
Unfortunately, several members of the Republican Party have used this same playbook to advance a false narrative against me, in an attempt to ruin my hard-earned reputation and have me removed from my duly-elected office. The excerpts below, are from Journal News articles describes how the Butler County Sheriff’s Office submitted documents with false information to the Ohio Supreme Court in their attempt to have me suspended from office.
Please read the excerpts below and listen to the attached audio file. The false narrative being pushed will be obvious.

I hope you will join me in asking why this false narrative was created and who is advancing this blatant lie?
I have served Butler County for the past 14 years with dignity and professionalism. I’ve cut costs, advanced conservative policies, and fought for taxpayers at every opportunity. I respectfully ask you to reserve judgement and allow for due process so I may prove my innocence.
I hope to see all of you at the next endorsement meeting on April 19th at 6:00. Please stand with me and against those who wield their power for personal gain and party division.
