1995 McIntyre vs Ohio Elections Commission case.
The fact is, Ohio has its own State Constitution and bill of rights. And the case should never have found its way into the United States Supreme Court.
Under Ohio’s Bill of Rights, we find:
I.11 Freedom of speech; of the press; of libels (1851)
Every citizen may freely speak, write, and publish his sentiments on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of the right; and no law shall be passed to restrain or abridge the liberty of speech, or of the press. In all criminal prosecutions for libel, the truth may be given in evidence to the jury, and if it shall appear to the jury, that the matter charged as libelous is true, and was published with good motives, and for justifiable ends, the party shall be acquitted.
Additionally, the first ten amendment to our federal Constitution, which includes freedom of speech, were directed at the federal government and did not grant any authority to allow the federal government to enter the states and make them enforceable upon the various state governments.
