http://www.wkyc.com/news/article/200314/45/Investigator--Frequent-flyer-Gov-Kasich-called-hypocrite- Gov. John Kasich is fast becoming a frequent flyer and it's happening on the taxpayers' dime. The governor has come under attack for using state planes to excess, especially when he's asking taxpayers to tighten their belts in these tough economic times. A Channel 3 News review of Kasich's travels by state plane shows that he is on pace to quadruple the amount of money that his predecessor, former Gov. Ted Strickland, spent on state planes in his last year in office.
