Rep. Jim Renacci, R-Ohio, is facing criticism for a campaign flight to meet with faith leaders on a plane owned by a strip club proprietor.
According to Cleveland.com, Don Ksiezyk owns both the plane and the “Peek-a-Boo” strip club in Cleveland. Renacci downplayed the connection, calling Ksiezyk a volunteer and saying that Renacci’s campaign was “not going to vet volunteers.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Renacci won the Republican primary for a Senate seat in May and is facing incumbent Sherrod Brown, a Democrat. Renacci deflected questions on his connection with the strip club owner by bringing up Brown’s “multiple abuses,” the local outlet reported.
“I’m going with a volunteer, and no one’s concerned about traveling with him or anything,” said Renacci. “Again, it’s so sad that we’re worried about my travel, which is legal, but you won’t report on Sherrod Brown’s multiple abuses over the years.”
Flight records show a plane registered to an address shared with the Peek-a-Boo Club in Cleveland flew from the Wooster area to Portsmouth. Later that evening, Renacci tweeted about meeting with the “faith leaders.”https://t.co/VLjkV68Vty

Unfortunately, my opponent Sherrod Brown is standing w Chuck Schumer & opposing Judge Kavanaugh for political reasons, even though he voted for 100% of President Obama’s Supreme Court nominees. We need a Senator who’ll do what’s best for Ohioans & put Party loyalty aside. #OHSen pic.twitter.com/NtZjZMJZJj
