Ohio Democratic Party Statement on Convictions in GOP FirstEnergy Bribery Scandal
March 10, 2023
Columbus, OH – Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement in response to the verdict in the FirstEnergy bribery scandal.
“For too long, Republican politicians and their wealthy, well-connected friends have gotten away with screwing over working Ohioans and then making those same working Ohioans foot the bill for GOP misdeeds. Today, Ohioans on the jury made clear: no one is above the law.
“But this scandal doesn’t stop with Larry Householder or Matt Borges. This scandal runs deep within the Ohio Republican Party, and every GOP politician who enabled it to happen or stood by complicity must be held accountable. And that’s what we plan to do.”
