    Ohio Sen. Rob Portman is touting his work on behalf of ArmorSource, a manufacturer of protective headgear based in his home state, in a new re-election ad this week. The Republican lawmaker recalls how he intervened on behalf of ArmorSource to make sure the company had the chance to bid on a federal contract to make helmets for U.S. troops.

    What the ad doesn’t say is that earlier this month, ArmorSource paid $3 million to settle allegations that helmets it previously sold to the U.S. military “did not conform to contract requirements and failed to meet contract performance standards.” According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the helmets “failed ballistic safety tests.”
