“Jon Husted is the highest paid elected statewide official and makes over $176,000 per year, even more than the Governor,” said Pullins. “Taking this corporate gig is simply a slap in the face to Republican voters who barely renominated him a few weeks ago.”
“Ohio’s statewide elected officials, especially ones that were deeply involved in other scandals, need to avoid actual conflicts, but also the appearance of conflicts and impropriety,” continued Pullins. “Taking two paid corporate board seats while serving as the full time Lt. Governor stinks and Ohioans know it,” said Pullins. “If Husted doesn’t resign, then the Ohio General Assembly should begin proceedings to remove him from office and the Ohio Republican Party should replace him on the ballot.”
