COLUMBUS – State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) issueda statement today as the Ohio House voted unanimously to strip Larry Householder (R-Glenford) of his role as Speaker of the House. Householder and four associates were indicted by a federal grand jury today amid an ongoing FBI criminal investigation into his connection to an alleged $60 million public corruption and bribery scheme—the largest in state history.

“Ohio deserves better than two Republican Speakers under FBI investigation. We learned this morning that Householder was indicted by a grand jury. I voted for his removal as Speaker and I am calling for him to resign from his seat so we can get back to the work of the people,” said Rep. Galonski.
