Sen. Sherrod Brown blames GOP single-party rule for corruption case

Sen. Sherrod Brown is joining the bipartisan chorus of Ohio politicians calling for the resignation of Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder.

During a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, Brown, a Democrat, said Householder’s arrest in an alleged racketeering scheme is a result of decades of control by the Ohio Republican Party.

“This is a Republican Party that is intrinsically corrupt,” he said. “Look at what’s happened in this state because one party has ruled for so long.”

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Republicans control both chambers of the Ohio General Assembly and swept every statewide elected office in 2018 except for Brown’s Senate seat.

3. Is Brown saying that if Joe is the president that it would be best that we didnt win the Senate?

That would appear to be the logical conclusion

In 2018 250,000 had to vote for a liberal den in Sherrod Brown and then turn around and
vote for conservative gop people for governor, Sec. of State (redraw districts in 2020), and
A.G..
