Federal agents earlier this morning arrested Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder and four others in connection to what authorities describe as "a public corruption racketeering conspiracy involving $60 million."

The U.S. Attorney’s office said it is holding a 2:30 p.m. press conference today related to $60 million in bribes paid to a state official and associates.

The Toledo Blade reports the investigation is believed to be related to Ohio's passage last year of a law bailing out nuclear power plants.
