Untangling the FirstEnergy scandal: A guided tour of the biggest corruption case in Ohio history
In 2020, the FBI revealed details of a $60 million corruption case that has so far led to multiple arrests, including Ohio House speaker Larry Householder, and the resignation of the state’s top utility regulator.
Join Energy News Network, journalists, and advocates from Ohio as we walk through the tangled web of dark money and back-door dealmaking that helped the state’s largest utility secure multiple bailouts while hamstringing efforts to advance clean energy.
