COLUMBUS – The Ohio House of Representatives today passed House Resolution 69, legislation that expels State Representative Larry Householder, who was removed from his position as Speaker of the House last July when he and four others were charged with racketeering and bribery involving the passage of House Bill 6 of the 133rd General Assembly.
“Today’s vote to expel Larry Householder wasn’t a determination of guilt of the charges brought against him. Mr. Householder will still get his day in court. Today’s vote comes as a direct result of the misconduct displayed by Mr. Householder during his time in office,” said Koehler. “The people of Ohio elect us to the esteemed position of State Representative with the confidence that we will show this office the honor, integrity, and respect it deserves.”
“There is no place for misconduct or corruption within the Ohio House. My favorable vote today represents my commitment to eradicate the corruption plaguing Ohio.”
House Resolution 69 passed with a vote of 75-21.
