The FBI has arrested the Republican speaker of Ohio’s House of Representatives, Larry Householder, in connection with a $60 million bribery scheme. Householder is accused of helping pass a $1.1 billion bailout of two nuclear plants after his political operation received $60 million from the owner of the plants, FirstEnergy Solutions. The company is not facing charges and is not named in the indictment. Four others were arrested on Tuesday, including the former chair of the Ohio Republican Party, an aide to Householder and two lobbyists.
