Strahorn to replace Luckie on ballot



The Montgomery County Democratic Party selected former state senator Fred Strahorn to replace Rep. Clayton Luckie on the November ballot.

Luckie dropped out of the race a day after the Franklin County prosecutor said Luckie was under investigation. The prosecutor has said little other than that the probe doesn’t involve bribery.

Prosecutor: Ohio lawmaker under investigation


In a statement to reporters, Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said that state Rep. Clayton Luckie is under investigation. He didn't specify any allegations, saying only that the inquiry does not involve bribery. Earlier this year, another lawmaker was prosecuted on bribery and other charges.

Soon after, Luckie released his own statement reiterating that the investigation "is not related in any way to the ongoing investigation into the conduct of any other state official related to bribery."

"I assure my constituents that I have not been involved in any of that conduct, nor am I the target of said investigation," the Dayton Democrat said. "We have, however, discovered errors on some reports that are currently being addressed."

Luckie said he takes such matters seriously and that his team is conducting a full review into the reports. He didn't say what type of reports had errors.
