Attorney General challenges legality of Householder using $1M campaign cash for legal fees

 

"Attorney General Dave Yost said Friday he would file a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission after a disclosure Thursday that former House Speaker Larry Householder used campaign cash to cover legal fees since his July arrest on federal corruption charges.

In a tweet Friday morning, Yost said the spending was illegal and that he was directing staff in his office to pursue a formal complaint.

The post came a day after Householder's pre-general election campaign finance filing, which included seven expenditures since mid-July totaling more than $1 million to three separate law firms, including $660,000 to Marein & Bradley in Cleveland, the firm currently representing him in federal court."
