The Ohio House of Representatives released the following statement in regards to the search warrant:
“The Ohio House of Representatives today received and fully cooperated with a federal search warrant for personal items at the Riffe Center belonging to Larry Householder. The House will continue cooperating with federal investigators as part of our effort to restore integrity and trust to the House.”
Householder, along with Jeffrey Longstreth, Neil Clark, Matthew Borges, Juan Cespedes and Generation Now were indicted on Rico Conspiracy charges, in connection with an alleged $60 million bribery scheme involving the passage of 2019’s House Bill 6.
