Voter referendum on nuclear bailout had signature collection targeted, criminal complaint says

The criminal complaint against Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder and four political operatives lays out alleged bribes made to signature collectors for a voter referendum on a nuclear bailout, along with a comprehensive campaign to hire signature collection companies, just so those companies couldn’t work against the bailout effort, House Bill 6.

Householder is charged in an alleged bribery, money laundering and racketeering scheme along with Jeffrey Longstreth, Neil Clark, Matthew Borges, Juan Cespedes, and the purported social service non-profit, Generation Now, which federal investigators say was merely a Householder-controlled corporation.

Stopping signature collection

As part of the 80-page criminal complaint, the four operatives are all named as part of a scheme to keep collectors from getting those signatures, and bribing individuals to provide “inside information” about where the campaign stood.

The criminal complaint alleges that Borges was brought in to bribe an employee of the ballot campaign to repeal HB 6 for inside information. That employee then contacted the FBI after meeting with Borges in September, according to the criminal complaint.
