To:    Mrs. Fanchion Finney, Treasurer, Erie County Republican Party

You have requested an opinion on the following question:

May the Erie County Republican Party use moneys received from the Ohio Political Party Fund for a temporary headquarters from September 1, 1988 through November 8, 1988?

Syllabus:    Moneys from the Ohio Political Party Fund may be used to defray the costs associated with a permanent or temporary political party headquarters, but only to the extent that such costs, in whole or part, are unrelated to furthering the election or defeat of a candidate or group of candidates or influencing directly the outcome of any candidate or issue election.
