Sutton Calls On Rep. Jim Renacci To Return Suspect Donations

Press Release

Following reports that Congressman Jim Renacci's largest donor and his employees are at the center of an FBI investigation, Betty Sutton today called on Renacci to return more than $100,000 in questionable donations.

"Given the seriousness of the investigation into a pattern of highly irregular contributions to Congressman Renacci, he should return the questionable contributions immediately," said Sutton. "This FBI investigation raises significant questions about how Congressman Renacci obtained tens of thousands of dollars of highly unusual donations. He should come clean with Ohioans and return the suspicious contributions."

Suspect donations from employees of the Suarez Corporation to Renacci's campaign first drew speculation last August when employees of moderate means who had no history of political giving suddenly gave the maximum contribution to the Congressman. Renacci admitted yesterday that authorities launched the investigation more than five months ago and that his office had turned over records to investigators.

"Ohioans deserve better, and it is up to Congressman Renacci to do the right thing; He needs to honor the public trust and return these questionable contributions. "
