Would You Give Up Your Freedom For Money?

By Brian Massie, A Watchman on the Wall

Thanks to the patriots at Auburntownship.org for republishing this article originally published by the Capital Journal staff. Sadly, elected and appointed officials chose to gamble their freedom, and besmirch their family name, all for money!

“Greed is the inordinate, insatiable desire to accumulate money , power, and security to such as a degree that it supersedes moral integrity, and even spiritual integrity.”

FORMER OHIO PUBLIC UTILITIES CHAIRMAN SAM RANDAZZO INDICTED BY FEDERAL GRAND JURY FOR BRIBERY, EMBEZZLEMENT

Excerpt from the article:

Sam Randazzo, 74, of Columbus, self-surrendered at U.S. District Court in Cincinnati Monday morning Dec. 4th, the release said. Randazzo is charged in an 11-count indictment on Nov. 29.

The charges stem from an ongoing investigation into what federal prosecutors have called the biggest political bribery scandal in state history, where Akron-based FirstEnergy paid more than $60 million in 2018 and 2019 to get the legislature to pass and protect a $1.3 billion bailout that was mostly intended to benefit FirstEnergy.

Jones, Dowling and Randazzo denied wrongdoing, but in the agreement, FirstEnergy said the executives paid Randazzo a $4.3 million bribe just as Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine was nominating him to be the top Ohio regulator overseeing FirstEnergy.

“Public officials — whether elected or appointed — are tasked with upholding the highest level of integrity in their duties and responsibilities. Such service to the public must be selfless, not selfish,” said U.S. Attorney Kenneth L. Parker in Monday morning’s release. “Through the indictment unsealed today, we seek to hold Randazzo accountable for his alleged illegal activities.”
