House Speaker Orders Ethics Probe Of Wright State University Consultant
Republican Ohio House speaker Cliff Rosenberger has ordered an ethics investigation of whether a consultant for Wright State University possibly advised the school's president to offer to throw him a major fundraiser while he was advocating for state money. Emails reviewed by the Dayton Daily News show Ron Wine advised WSU President David Hopkins to suggest the fundraiser while asking Rosenberger for help raising 10 million dollars for a September presidential debate. The emails show Wine advised Hopkins to tell Rosenberger school supporters could host the fundraiser. Wine and a university spokesperson have issued denials.
