Jonathan L. Entin, the David L. Brennan Professor Emeritus of Law and adjunct professor of political science, opined on the arrest—and subsequent ouster—of Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder following federal charges of corruption.
His piece, titled “Ohio joins the big leagues of corruption,” appeared on cleveland.com.
“Let’s not discount the scandal that is now unfolding in Columbus,” Entin wrote. “The $60 million scheme described in the charges against Householder and his co-defendants far exceeds any of the shenanigans in New York, Massachusetts, or Illinois. Based on the reactions of state officials, this scandal might have more impact than any of the smaller ones elsewhere. Let’s hope so, anyway.”
