Ohio Democratic Party Statement on the House Vote Expelling Larry Householder from Office
June 16, 2021
Columbus, OH — Today, the Ohio Democratic Party released the following statement after the Ohio House of Representatives voted to expel disgraced former Speaker Larry Householder. Speaker Bob Cupp and House Republicans delayed any action on Householder and only moved forward with expulsion after House Democrats introduced legislation to expel Householder from office.
“Thanks to the leadership and initiative of Ohio Democrats, Larry Householder is no longer a member of the Ohio House of Representatives, collecting a taxpayer salary. But before House Republicans strain their arms patting themselves on the back for finally getting rid of the disgraced former Speaker a year later, they should know this story is far from over. Householder is just one of many high-level Republican officeholders with strong ties to the largest corruption scandal in state history — one that Ohioans continue paying the price for. And Democrats will continue working to hold these Republicans accountable,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
