Foe settles with Strickland

        COLUMBUS — The Ohio Elections Commission approved a settlement of U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland's complaint that the campaign of his Republican challenger falsely accused him of condoning child molestation.

        Mike Azinger's campaign agreed with a ruling by the Elections Commission Thursday that it distributed the false information during Mr. Strickland's re-election campaign last fall..

        At issue was a description of Mr. Strickland's vote on a 1999 resolution condemning a study about child molestation.

        Mr. Strickland voted “present” — in effect, abstaining.

        The congressman said he agreed with most of the resolution, but couldn't endorse it because it characterized child victims of molestation as having a tendency to become sex abusers as adults.
