(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted, who served as 99th Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives from 2005 – 2009, today released the following statement regarding the criminal complaint against Speaker Larry Householder:
“As a former House Speaker, it makes me incredibly sad.
“With the announcement of today’s criminal complaints, the Speaker can no longer effectively perform his duties and should resign.
“Ohio is in the midst of a pandemic response and economic downturn, and the institution of the House of Representatives must remain operational, and the integrity of the office and the institution must be restored.”
