Judge Allows Ex-Ohio House Speaker More Time to Find Lawyer | Political News

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The former speaker of the Ohio House can take more time to find a permanent lawyer to defend him against a charge related to an alleged $60 million bribery scheme, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

Republican Rep. Larry Householder and four others are accused of shepherding $60 million in energy company money for personal and political use, in exchange for passing a legislative bailout of two nuclear power plants and then derailing an attempt to place a rejection of the bailout on the ballot.

Four defendants pleaded not guilty earlier this month to the charge that they conspired as part of what one defendant called an “unholy alliance” aimed at saving the plants.

A judge allowed Householder to delay that Aug. 6 court appearance to find a new attorney. Householder’s current attorney, Dave Thomas, says he has an unspecified conflict of interest and must drop off

    Government Foreclosures for Sale | Find Government Homes

    Government foreclosures are residential properties that have been repossessed and put up for sale by a government agency. The reasons for these sales can vary. In some cases, a property owner may have obtained a government-sponsored mortgage loan to buy real estate. Several government agencies, such as the Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD), the Federal Housing Authority (FHA), the Veteran’s Affairs department (VA), offer mortgages to citizens at special rates. However, when a homeowner defaults on their mortgage, these agencies will have to repossess their property and sell it in order to get back the money lost on the unpaid loan.

    Of course, there are other reasons government foreclosures are sold as well. Many homes are repossessed and sold by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) due to tax debts. In some cases, the U.S. Marshall’s office or Homeland Security department may sell property seized due to criminal activity.
