COLUMBUS – State Rep. Jon Cross (R-Kenton) today issued the following statement regarding the vote to expel Larry Householder:
“For nearly a year now, House leadership and my colleagues have asked Mr. Householder to resign, and he chose not to. Householder will have his day in court, but the Ohio Constitution gives the Ohio House the ability to remove members for misconduct. Today’s vote is simply a forced resignation.
The serious allegations have no place in the People’s House. I voted to expel Householder in order to uphold the integrity of our institution. The judicial system and court proceedings will determine the fate of citizen Larry Householder.”
