According to the Columbus Dispatch, federal officials have arrested Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder and four others in connection with a $60 million bribery case.
Although multiple sources confirmed Householder’s arrest, U.S. Attorney David DeVillers’ office would not discuss details of the case.
Former Ohio GOP Chairman Matt Borges, longtime Householder adviser Jeff Longstreth, and lobbyists Neil Clark and Juan Cespedes also were arrested, the sources confirmed.
The Speaker and the four others are reported to appear in a virtual arraignment at the US District Court in Columbus, Ohio Tuesday.
DeVillers’ Office and the FBI plan to announce charges in the case Tuesday afternoon.
