The tale of Kelley Williams-Bolar, the Akron mom who lied to get her kids into Copley district schools instead of Akron city schools, has become a national topic of conversation. Who doesn't want to weigh in on a mom convicted of a felony just for doing whatever she could to send her children to a better school?
Today, Governor Kasich addressed the topic, sympathizing with Williams-Bolar and doing everything but calling out the laws as patently stupid.
''My legal team has been reviewing it in detail and is in the process of talking to her lawyer, the prosecutor and the school district, in order to provide me a complete briefing,'' Kasich said.
''Our laws exist for a reason and they must be enforced, but the idea that a woman would become a convicted felon for wanting a better future for her children is something that has rightly raised a lot of concern with people, including me.''
