The news is out: [The Ohio House of Representatives voted unanimously Thursday to remove Republican Larry Householder as speaker of the GOP-controlled chamber following his arrest in a bribery case last week.
Householder and four others were arrested July 21 in connection with a $60 million federal bribery scheme involving state officials and associates. Authorities say Householder and others enriched themselves by endorsing a bailout of more than $1 billion for a coal and nuclear power company in the state.
On Thursday, minutes before the Ohio House voted to strip Householder of power, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio announced that a grand jury had indicted the former speaker and the others who had been charged.]
Corruption is everywhere money can be found. It’s an example of the money laundering scheme that I predicted.
