Ohio lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are calling on Speaker Larry Householder to resign in the wake of his arrest Tuesday on federal racketeering charges.

They join four statewide officials and the chairs of both state political parties in calling for Householder to step down.

While exiting a court building on Tuesday, Householder told ABC6 reporter Lu Ann Stoia he would not be resigning from office.

Here is a list of state lawmakers and other officials who have called for Householder’s resignation:

  1. Resigning is without a doubt the first start in fixing this problem. Politicians think they are so above the law even being caught red handed. Their elected brothers and friends will see that no harm is done. Just like the big business that will be protected also from any repercussions. When is the government going to stand up and say enough to this and grow a backbone.
