Ohio Town Hall Meetings/TEA Parties in August

Here is a list I have compiled of Ohio Town Hall Meetings and TEA Parties and related Meetings to be held during the Month of August. I will update this article as I receive information. I would encourage you to attend as many of these events as possible. Many Ohio members of Congress are in hiding this summer. They do not want to fess up to their outrageous votes recently in Congress. They are either not having Town Hall Meetings or doing exclusive, invitation-only or highly scripted meetings. If anyone has any additional information on any similar events please use the comment section and I will try to keep an update current list.

I just saw Coach Daubenmire on Fox News. While he was being interviewed, a statement was read from Congressman Space's office in which he said that he held a town hall meeting last night with 300 people. Is this the case? Who is lying?
