Ohio Democratic Party Statement on the Householder Sentencing
June 29, 2023
Columbus, OH — Today, Ohio Democratic Party (ODP) Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement after disgraced Republican Larry Householder was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in the largest bribery scheme in Ohio history.
“Today was a step in the right direction for justice and the rule of law. For years, Republican politicians in Columbus have used their positions of power in the statehouse to enrich themselves and their wealthy, well-connected friends, and today’s sentence once again reminds us that no one is above the law. However, we know that Householder did not act alone, and we continue to call for accountability for every GOP politician connected to this scandal,” said ODP Chair Elizabeth Walters.
