Megerle told The Enquirer in an interview Sunday that the accusation he was trying to mislead voters is "nonsense."

"It's a partisan attack," Megerle said. "They have no plan to solve our failing schools."

The school board race is nonpartisan, meaning the candidates' parties are not listed on the ballot. Megerle's opponent, Pamela Bowers, and Moroski have previously been endorsed by the Hamilton County Democratic Party.

He verified the specific ad Moroski mentioned was paid for by his campaign.

Megerle is a former Covington Commissioner and more recently served as the chief of staff for City Councilman Jeff Pastor.

In 2009, charges were filed against Megerle in Kentucky for violating campaign finance restrictions and failure to identify campaign contributors and advertisers.

He pleaded guilty to the charges which stemmed from a series of political ads. Those ads were called anti-gay by critics. A Kenton County judge said those ads were meant to "stoke the fires of bigotry."

Moroski also pointed out these convictions in his tweet. Those misdemeanors have been expunged from Megerle’s record, and he said his opponents are focused on the past.

"It's sad that partisan city councilmembers and a school board member are obsessed with tales of the past because I am focued on taking our schools from failing to first,” he said. “My priorities will always be fighting for students, parents, and taxpayers."

Cincinnati City Councilwoman Tamaya Dennard retweeted Moroski's comments with the comment: "All facts. Say NO to this pretender."

On Facebook, Dennard continued: "The actual candidate is a joke of a Conservative who used to work at City Hall. Don’t be deceived... I think inclusive ads are great but that isn’t what is happening here. He’s trying to deceive people."

Megerle said he wants to work with Dennard and the rest of City Council to use community block grant funding to pay for down payments on houses for African American teachers in order to attract more to Cincinnati Public Schools.

"Seventy percent of the students in our failing Cincinnati Public Schools are African American," Megerle said. "I am running so the children can have a chance to succeed and rise out of poverty."

He said he also wants to partner with historically black colleges and universities to offer signing bonuses to African American teachers willing to sign on for five years in Cincinnati.

City Councilman Chris Seelbach called Megerle's ad "disgusting, but somehow expected."

"He’s a Trump-supporting, Tea Party loving conservative Republican," Seelbach wrote on Facebook. "But even more...HE’S A WHITE MAN! Don’t be confused."

Megerle is running in a special election against incumbent Pamela Bowers and Gary Favors for a single open school board seat with a term that expires on Dec. 2021.

A separate race for three additional seats will be on the ballot on November 1. Eve Bolton, Carolyn Jones, Marlena Brookfield, Heather Couch and Ben Lindy are competing for those seats.

Megerle's campaign website, giveourkidsachance.com, features a photo of himself on the front page. It does not mention the office he held in Covington, and only says he was a chief of staff at Cincinnati's City Hall without naming Pastor.

Other promotional images on the candidate's Facebook page feature stock-style images of a white man with a child and what appears to be a shop class.

The cover image on his campaign Facebook page, as of Sunday, does include Megerle.
