A recent report by the state Inspector General that looked into the work activities of two former aides to Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor is being questioned. 

Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles explains why.

When he was chairman of the Ohio Democratic Party in June 2014, Chris Redfern accused a former top employee of Taylor's of campaigning while on the payroll for her state job.

A Democratic state lawmaker is sponsoring a bill that would prevent Ohio's Secretary of State from removing many people from voter rolls. 

Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.

Ohio Rep. Kathleen Clyde of Kent says her bill would not allow the state’s top elections official to "purge" voters for failing to vote often enough or failing to update their addresses.
