Attorney General Dave Yost subpoenaed in Ohio bribery scandal


Federal officials investigating the House Bill 6 bribery scandal subpoenaed records from Attorney General Dave Yost’s office the day before arresting then-House Speaker Larry Householder and four allies.

The subpoena, issued July 20, sought records related to an attempt to stage a statewide referendum to overturn HB6, a controversial energy law, according to a copy of the document acquired by ProgressOhio, a left-leaning interest group. The subpoena also demanded AG’s office records related to Ohioans Against Corporate Bailouts and Ohioans for Energy Security — the main groups for and against the referendum, respectively.
