Ohio Democrat Leader: Kasich Ethics Question Unresolved
The Ohio House’s leading Democrat said the state ethics panel’s dismissal Thursday of complaints involving Republican Gov. John Kasich and his privatized economic development office left unanswered ethical questions.
House Democratic Leader Tracy Heard said Monday Ohioans deserved an Ohio Ethics Commission investigation into whether compensation Kasich received from Worthington Industries was tied to state tax credits awarded to the firm’s subsidiaries.
The Associated Press reported subsidiaries of the central Ohio steel processor received $619,000 in job-creation tax credits in 2012 and 2013. As a director of the firm, Kasich collected $611,000 through fiscal 2011. JobsOhio recommended the tax deals.
The ethics commission’s chairman determined Kasich made a clean break from the firm.
Heard urged the Republican-led Legislature to weigh coming legislation that will propose added JobsOhio scrutiny.
