Wes Goodman, who consistently touted his faith and conservative values, abruptly resigned late Tuesday after being confronted with evidence of inappropriate conduct with another man inside his Riffe Center office, the second Ohio lawmaker to fall within a month.House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger, R-Clarksville, met Tuesday afternoon with the Cardington Republican soon after the speaker became aware of an incident from weeks ago in the lawmaker's office that, sources said, involved a male in a consensual situation.No harassment complaint, sexual or otherwise, was filed against Goodman.But someone, reportedly not a staffer, who knew of or witnessed the incident informed House Chief of Staff Mike Dittoe of the situation early Tuesday afternoon.Democrats, citing attorney-client privilege, would not disclose to Obhof or Jason Mauk, his chief of staff, who made the complaint and what it was about.Asked if there was discomfort with not knowing what happened, Obhof said, “there is, and we are looking into it to the extent that we are able to.” Obhof is expected to send a letter soon to Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko, D-Richmond Heights, saying that he would like the opportunity to talk to the woman who made the complaint.There also is concern that Mauk, who is responsible for the employment of all Senate staff, had to accept Premo’s resignation without really knowing why.
Senators underwent sexual harassment training Wednesday, said Senate President Larry Obhof, R-Medina, and staff will follow in the coming weeks. Later he served as managing director for the Conservative Action Project, where he says he "led the fight for conservative principles like a balanced budget, lower taxes, repealing Obamacare, life, and religious liberty..." Jordan endorsed Goodman in 2016, saying he had “the character, experience and passion to serve the families and taxpayers of our part of Ohio in the Statehouse.” A Jordan spokeswoman said he heard “no allegations of wrongdoing and received no accusations of misconduct” during Goodman’s nearly six years working for him.
