Special prosecutor named in Noe money-laundering investigation
We'll have more on this in a day or two on this, but both the Dispatch and Blade report on the new special prosecutor. From the Blade:
A special prosecutor will review an investigation into whether Lucas County Commissioner Maggie Thurber and three other Republican public officials violated state ethics laws in the Tom Noe campaign money-laundering case.
Lynn Grimshaw, a former Scioto County prosecutor, was appointed by a Lucas County Common Pleas Court judge yesterday to investigate Ms. Thurber; former Toledo Mayor Donna Owens, an ex-director of the state Department of Commerce; Toledo Councilman Betty Shultz, and Sally Perz, a former state representative and gubernatorial appointee.
