COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) — The chairman of the Ohio Republican Party says Democrat State Representative Clayton Luckie should step down.
In a statement released Nov. 21, 2012, Bob Bennett called on leaders in the Ohio Democratic Party to force Luckie to resign.
Luckie is under federal indictment for 49 counts of criminal activity, including theft in office, money laundering, and fraud.
"Enough is enough and the fact that Clayton Luckie continues to take a taxpayer paycheck while facing charges of lying, cheating, and stealing is a disgrace to the Democrat Caucus and an outrageous affront to the people of his district," said Bennett. "Luckie has four times as many felony charges as Bernie Madoff and he still hasn't resigned."
Luckie was appointed in November 2006 to the 39th House District seat that was left empty when Dixie Allen ran for county commissioner.
Luckie was indicted in October 2012 after an FBI investigation that stretched back nearly two years.
