Public Safety Director Collins-Taylor Denied Committee Confirmation
Listen to the Story
An Ohio Senate committee has recommended against confirmation of the state’s top public safety official accused of lying about a decision to cancel a contraband sting at the governor’s residence.
The Republican-controlled Senate Criminal Justice Committee voted 5-4 against Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland’s appointment of Public Safety Director Cathy Collins-Taylor.
Collins-Taylor testified during a hearing that started Wednesday, defending herself against allegations that political considerations made her call off the sting involving prison inmates working at the residence.
