05.23.18 - Leland Responds To Statehouse Dysfunction As Republicans Remain Gridlocked

 

State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) issued the following statement in response to today’s session cancellation notice from House Republicans hours before the House was scheduled to vote on a new Republican speaker:

“In the wake of reports of FBI raids of the house of disgraced former Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, Republican leadership cancelled yet another session today. The majority remains haunted by the Rosenberger scandal. When we put partisan politics above the people, it’s the taxpayers who suffer. Ohioans deserve better. There is important work left for this General Assembly to do this year, and instead of holding the people’s work hostage, we should be coming together to defend the integrity of this institution and get back to the work we were sent here to do.”

 
 

05.16.18 - Leland Responds To House Session Cancellation Amid Failure To Elect New Speaker

 

State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) today issued the following statement in response to House Republicans’ decision to cancel scheduled session today after failing to reach consensus on electing a new House Speaker:

“It is important that the House continue to do the work the people of Ohio sent us here to do. It is clear that there are rules in place that would allow the House to move forward and not be impeded by this Republican internal struggle to elect a Speaker.”

 
 

05.04.18 - Lawmakers Look To Federal Authorities For Answers On Former House Speaker's Alleged Corruption

 

Ahead of an anticipated May 16 vote to elect a new speaker of the Ohio House, two lawmakers are seeking answers as to why former Republican House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger resigned abruptly, amid reports of potential corruption. State Reps. Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus) and David Leland (D-Columbus) today asked the special agent in charge of the Cincinnati Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Ohio to provide any or as much information as possible on any current or potential investigation of Rosenberger’s unprecedented resignation.

 
 

04.21.18 - Lawmakers Call For Independent Investigation Of Rosenberger, House Activity

 

Following former Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger's abrupt resignation amid questions of possible FBI inquiries into matters he may have been involved with, two House lawmakers are saying the House and taxpayers deserve more answers, and soon. 

State Reps. David Leland and Kristin Boggs are asking two outside parties to indepently investigate the nature and extent of potential corruption at the Ohio House to ensure lawmakers can continue the People's work without getting caught up in pay-to-play lawmaking.

"Allegations of corruption targeted at the Ohio Speaker have never before resulted in a Speaker’s resignation. This is the first time in Ohio’s history that the Speaker of the Ohio House has resigned in such disgrace, and his resignation leads us to believe that illicit forces have been corrupting, and may continue to corrupt, the work of the Statehouse," the lawmakers wrote in their letter.
