Bad Liar

This week, former speaker of the Ohio House Larry Householder was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in the largest bribery scheme in Ohio history.

While this sentencing is a step in the right direction, we know that Householder did not act alone. His cronies, Mike DeWine, Jon Husted, Dave Yost, Matt Dolan and Frank LaRose have their fingerprints all over the scandal.

Lying LaRose in particular learned from the best (at committing fraud) and is just another in a long line of corrupt Ohio Republicans.

In fact, LaRose’s super PAC for his not-yet announced Senate campaign is being led by a former Householder operative. It’s not really surprising when we remember the fact that LaRose has been running a sketchy shadow campaign dogged by ethics concerns.

It seems like LaRose is busy doing everything BUT his job as Secretary of State.

He’s running 5ks, he’s wasting millions of taxpayers dollars on an August election, and he’s bending over backwards to defend issue 1.

All while sending incorrect ballot language for issue 1 to local boards of election.

What do you think he’ll do next?! Hopefully leave Ohio.

Flavor of the Week

This week we asked the Mayor of Cleveland, Justin Bibb, his favorite local ice cream maker and flavor. Check out his answer below:
