FBI Agents Search Ex-Ohio House Speaker’s Statehouse Office< < Back to
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Federal authorities have executed a search warrant in the Statehouse office of former Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder.
The search for Householder’s personal belongings took place Friday, a day after the chamber he formerly led voted to strip him of his leadership role.
Householder, a Republican, has been implicated in a $60 million bribery scheme. He’s accused of shepherding energy company money for personal and political use in exchange for passing a bailout of two aging nuclear plants.
Householder hasn’t entered a plea to a criminal charge. His attorney has declined comment.
Republicans who control the House say they’re cooperating.
