I suppose not all Republicans are crooks, but it seems an awful lot of crooks are Republicans.

They bought the rights to the Browns stadium (it used to be called Cleveland Browns Stadium, now First Energy Stadium)

A utility company... that the public is pretty much forced to pay.

"including then-Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder"whose seat the utility essentially secured"and his aides."

This Householder guy is corrupt from the toes up, and he still got elected. He stank so bad that his colleagues expelled him.
That's hard to do in the GOP.

Where are the indictments for the recipients of the bribes? So they pay $230 million because of their bribery but who received the bribes, how much did they get and how long should they serve in prison? And Brennn is right, no one seems to be going to prison....inquiring minds want to know what the f**k?
This seems like a scandal with so many unanswered questions that they think $230 million will answer???
