Ohio Miners Lost Pay for Romney Visit

Mitt Romney's campaign is airing two ads in Ohio "that include footage of the coal miners who lost pay because he campaigned at their mine," the Columbus Dispatch reports.

"The footage is from Romney's Aug. 14 campaign stop at the Century Mine in Beallsville, Ohio, owned by a subsidiary of Murray Energy Corp. It was later learned that the miners on stage were ordered out of the mine because of Romney's campaign stop and were not paid for the portion of their shift that was canceled by the event."
