Pay to Play at the State Level

Part 3 of ?

Written by: Brian Massie, Concord Township

On July 21, 2020, Mr. Frank LaRose, Ohio Secretary of State, filed a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission against two individuals: (1) Larry Householder, and (2) “Representative 3”.   We are wondering who “Representative 3” might be?   It is a designation of an unnamed individual in the 82 page Criminal Complaint recently filed by the U.S. Attorney Office – Southern District of Ohio.

We decided to see if we could uncover the real identity of this mystery man or woman.

From the Secretary of State’s website :


COLUMBUS – Today Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose referred nineteen apparent or alleged violations of Ohio campaign finance laws to the Ohio Elections Commission. All nineteen are connected to the 82-page Criminal Complaint(opens in a new window) that was publicly released today against State Representative Larry Householder, Jeff Longstreth, Neil Clark, Matthew Borges and Juan Cespedes.

“For those of us who answer the call to public service with a sincere desire to serve as good stewards of the public trust, today’s events are deeply disappointing,” said LaRose. “Sadly, today’s Criminal Complaint is a reminder that some enter public life seeking to accumulate personal power and to enrich themselves. Those who do so are not fit to hold public office.”

Among the alleged and apparent violations of Ohio’s campaign finance laws are:

  • acceptance of direct corporate contributions
  • failure to file a complete and accurate campaign finance statement
  • converting campaign funds for personal benefit

These nineteen items likely do not represent a comprehensive list of violations of Ohio laws by the named defendants. Secretary LaRose, his elections law team, and his campaign finance division will continue to review the relevant campaign finance reports and make additional referrals as violations become known.

The complaint sent to the Ohio Elections Commission can be found here(opens in a new window).


Please follow LFC’s trail of exhibits that will start pulling back the curtain for you.

Exhibit A –

From page number 35 of the 82 page Criminal Complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office – Southern District of Ohio, we see the following reference to “Representative 3 and 4″.

Page 35 of Criminal Complaint

“Freshman representatives, Representatives 3 and 4, who were elected in November 2018, sponsored HB 6.”

Here is a link to the Ohio legislature website covering HB6:


And the two sponsors were:

term as state representative.  He represents the 61st House District in the

eastern portion of Lake County.  [From his on-line biography]

State Representative Shane Wilkin (R) is serving his first term in the Ohio House of Representatives after being appointed during the 132nd General Assembly.  He represents the 91st Ohio House District, serving residents of Clinton, Highland, and Pike counties, as well as residents in a portion of Ross County.  [From his on-line biography]


So we can see that “Representative 3″ has to be either Mr. Callender or Mr. Wilkin.

In addition, on page 35 of the Criminal Compliant there is a footnote that states: “Representative 3 also received $18,700 in direct contributions to his campaign account from “Company A”.   This is a direct violation of Ohio Election laws and is, presumably, what caused Secretary of State Frank LaRose to file the complaint of “apparent or alleged violations of Ohio laws” against “Representative 3″.


Exhibit B –

Representative 3“, a Householder supporter, thanks the Householder team for the media campaign that provided “the cover” so they could vote in favor of the bailout they otherwise may not support.   This is further confirmation that “Representative 3” was a freshman sponsor of the HB 6,

Exhibit C –

Here is confirmation that Householder continued to use his Team-Householder-candidate-turned sponsor-of-HB6,  Householder and Longstreth talked on June 10, 2019 trying to make sure that “Representative 3” is ready to testify before the Senate Energy and Public Works Committee the next day – June 11, 2019.

Exhibit D –

On June 11, 2019 “Representative 3” did, in fact testify before the Committee as a proponent of HB 6,  Page 55 of Criminal Complaint June 11 2019


Exhibit E –

Here is the testimony given by Mr. Jamie Callender, State Representative District 61 to the State Energy and Public Utilities Committee as a proponent of HB 6 closing the loop for us on the identity of “Representative 3“.

Sadly, we must reveal that one of the hardest workers in the Ohio House, Jamie Callender, is the “Representative 3” that Frank LaRose, Ohio Secretary of State, mentioned in the formal complaint to the Ohio Elections Commission of apparent or alleged violations of Ohio laws.

We spoke to Mr. Callender today (7/24), and told him that we will never bear false witness against anyone, but we know that he is ‘Representative 3′.  He stated he was either “Representative 3 or 4’.  [Note to all politicians: Do not shave the truth with LFC.  It does not sit well with us, and prompts us to dig deeper.]  At that point, I told Mr. Callender that we have reviewed his campaign contribution reports, and found the $18,700 in two contribution dates, so there is no doubt in our mind that he is “3”.  Upon which Mr. Callender indicated that the charges in the complaint filed by the Secretary of State will be dropped.  Quite frankly, we hope that they are.  As far we are concerned, if the F.B.I. can make such an egregious mistake, it calls in to question what else they may have wrong in the whole bribery scheme.  The smallest of details are extremely important when you are dealing with the lives and reputations of the citizens.

We contacted the Secretary of State’s media person, and was told that she will find out if the charges will be dropped.  Upon hearing from the Secretary of State’s office, we will report to our readers what we are told.

We plan on continuing our research into the relationship between Householder and Callender.  We know that Householder and Callender are/were friends, and they apparently worked previously in the House of Representative on the charter school issue and ECOT.  We know that ECOT turned to “mush” with allegations of overcharging for students that did not exist.  We would like to determine if Mr. Callender is part of Householder’s inner circle, or was he just an ambitious lawyer that was duped by a very powerful friend.

Mr. Callender (R) is on the November, 2020 ballot against Mentor resident and school teacher, Mr. Adam Dudizak (D) for the State Representative District 61 position.   Mr. Dudziak is going to have trouble wiping the smile off his face when he reads all of the articles written about the bribery scheme.

If you are a Republican there is no joy in Lake County today.  The Democrats will, unfortunately, seize upon this scandal to paint a very ugly picture of every Republican running for office.  As strange as it may seem, this bribery scheme may cost President Trump the State of Ohio in the November election.  The Republican Party in Ohio needs a “reboot” in order to purge the deep state actors (Never Trumpers) that are only concerned about feathering their own nest regardless of the consequences to the citizens of Ohio.

With 11.6 million people in the State, there has to be some patriots that truly want to be public servants, and do not view public office as a career.  Maybe that is just wishful thinking, but what we have today is not working for the average citizen.
