FBI agents seized records from the home and a storage unit in Wilmington of former Republican Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger earlier this year as part of its investigation into potential bribes and kickbacks from the payday lending industry. 

A subpoena and search warrant released Monday by House officials in response to public records requests provide new details of the probe that led to Rosenberger's resignation in April. Documents show prosecutors sought three boxes and a thumb drive believed to contain evidence of extortion, conspiracy to commit extortion, attempt to commit extortion and bribery. Investigators also sought documentation of Rosenberger's travels and communications with payday industry lobbyists Stephen Dimon Junor and Leslie Gaines, and Carol Stewart of the payday lending company Advance America. His attorney has said Rosenberger has nothing to hide.
