Ohio lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are calling on Speaker Larry Householder to resign in the wake of his arrest Tuesday on federal racketeering charges.
They join four statewide officials and the chairs of both state political parties in calling for Householder to step down.
While exiting a court building on Tuesday, Householder told ABC6 reporter Lu Ann Stoia he would not be resigning from office.
