3. Householder has blocked DeWine on chgs to gun laws and Corona masks

https://www.cleveland.com/open/2020/05/speaker-larry-householder-has-been-a-thorn-in-ohio-gov-mike-dewines-side-during-coronavirus-response.html

snip--"House Speaker Larry Householder, long respected in Columbus as a patient and cunning political tactician, has been putting his skills to work in countering Gov. Mike DeWine’s response to the coronavirus crisis."

snip--" But it was just the latest in a long string of moves Householder, a conservative Perry County Republican with an independent streak, has made pressuring the governor’s office to pull back its COVID-19 response."


snip--" - In an April 17 radio interview, Householder indicated he would block any tax increases requested by the DeWine administration to balance the state budget. He expressed anger that the governor vetoed House-backed changes to the state Medicaid program. “I told them, don’t drag your butt back in here a year from now and ask for a tax increase,” he said. He also recalled forcing former Gov. Bob Taft to approve temporary budgets during a previous stint as House speaker in the early 2000s. “He hated me doing that,” Householder said."



Householder has blocked DeWine and previous Govs b/c he tightly controls his members. That control is now gone.

Things at the state house are going to be different

5. Looks like Larry took his position of power a little too seriously

And he got caught.

What's a few million rubles between friends?

11. I mentioned Kasich. I know DeWine is the current Gov.

Kasich got lots of money from coal companies in his earlier campaigns, but was very publicly against the nuclear bailout.

Kasich is a smart pol, what did he know?
