Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said Friday that he will file a complaint with the state elections commission about Larry Householder’s use of campaign money.

A review of Householder’s campaign finance report shows that more than $900,000 went to law firms to cover legal fees.

The attorney general says that is illegal.

Householder, the former House Speaker, was arrested in July, accused of taking part in a $60 million bribery scandal.
