Ohio Representative Jon Husted Investigation

January 20, 2009

Ohio Representative Jon Husted (R-37th Ohio House District and Speaker of the House) is under investigation by the Montgomery County Board of Elections for violating Ohio’s Residency Laws.
By law, Husted cannot run for the Legislature if he does not live in his district.
A legislator may be forced to forfeit his seat if he is not a legal resident of the district he represents.

Former Speaker of the Ohio House Jon Husted testified before the Montgomery County Board of Elections on Jan 7th, 2009, to answer allegations that he does not live in Kettering, where he is registered to vote.

This is a formal request to investigate the eligibility of Jon A. Husted to vote and run for office in Montgomery County.
“We have independently verified the following facts:
1. Jon Husted is a candidate for the State Senate in the 6th District and is registered to vote at 148 Sherbrooke Dr, Kettering, Ohio 45429.

2. His spouse owns a house located at 2305 Haverford Rd, Columbus, Ohio 43220. Property records attached from Franklin County Auditor Joseph R. Testa indicate that this is the couples permanent place of residence as they take the 2.5% homestead tax reduction.

3. The Ohio Revised Code requires that the 2.5% homestead reduction requires you to own and occupy your home as your principal place of residence. A homeowner and spouse are entitled to this homestead tax reduction on only one home in Ohio.

One can conclude then that either Mr. Husted is committing voter fraud or he is committing tax fraud.”
