Shot, Chaser, Lime: Frank LaRose’s Close Ties to Largest Corruption Scandal in Ohio History
July 5, 2023
New details continue to surface about Frank LaRose’s close ties to the largest corruption scandal in state history and his sketchy shadow campaign – including that LaRose’s super PAC is being led by a former Householder operative.
SHOT: Frank LaRose gets called out for trying to distance himself from Larry Householder and the largest corruption case in state history – despite being mentioned repeatedly in the criminal trial.
CHASER: A new report exposes Frank LaRose’s close ties to the largest corruption scandal in Ohio’s history – including new information that LaRose’s super PAC is being led by a former Householder operative.
LIME: During sentencing trials last week, Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Singer alluded to LaRose, saying: “It’s interesting that some people are piling on (Householder) after the fact… So many knew what was happening in real time and did nothing about it. Not only did they do nothing about it, they helped facilitate it.”
Ohioans continue to slam LaRose for his sketchy shadow campaign which has been dogged by ethics concerns. Earlier this year the Daily Beast found that LaRose had “possibly trigger[ed] campaign finance regulations” by admitting he was raising money into a super PAC.
“Frank LaRose owes Ohioans answers about his close ties to the largest corruption scandal in Ohio’s history,” said ODP spokesperson Reeves Oyster. “As more details come out about the shady dealings surrounding his shadow campaign for Ohio’s Senate seat, it’s becoming increasingly clear that LaRose is just another unethical, corrupt politician who will do and say anything to gain power.”
