Excerpts from article:
“Attorney General Dave Yost said Friday he would file a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission after a disclosure Thursday that former House Speaker Larry Householder used campaign cash to cover legal fees since his July arrest on federal corruption charges.
In a tweet Friday morning, Yost said the spending was illegal and that he was directing staff in his office to pursue a formal complaint.
“This is an illegal use of campaign money. I’ve directed my staff to file a complaint before the Ohio Elections Commission.”
