State Rep. Allison Russo (D-Upper Arlington) released the following statement today following the conviction of former Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder: 

“Justice was served today, and it now closes this chapter on Ohio’s largest corruption scandal in history. However, the issue of unlimited dark money and pay-to-play bribes being funneled through our political systems undoubtedly remains. We owe it to all Ohioans to rip these roots out permanently so taxpayers are never on the hook like this again, and so the government can regain the trust of the people,” said Rep. Russo. “In our continued fight against corruption, House Democrats will reintroduce the Ohio Anti-Corruption Act. Now is the time to fix this broken system, close the loopholes, and cut off special interest groups’ reach into our democratic process.” 

State Reps. Jessica E. Miranda (D-Forest Park) and Bride Rose Sweeney (D-Westlake) plan to reintroduce the Ohio Anti-Corruption Act which would require dark money groups to identify their contributors and disclose their spending.
