In The Region:

Almost a week after the state’s top investigator issued his report on the Coingate scandal of a decade ago, the chairman of the Ohio Democratic Party is putting out his own review of that report.

Chris Redfern says nothing new was learned in the Inspector General’s report on the scandal involving Republican fundraiser Tom Noe, who’s in prison for stealing $5 million from an investment in rare coins he was supposed to be making for the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. And Redfern says that’s unacceptable.

“This entire Coingate investigation, perhaps the most important scandal in the last 40 years, has been botched by this so-called inspector general and he should submit his resignation immediately”

Coingate resulted in 19 convictions, including a misdemeanor for ethics violations for then-Gov. Bob Taft.

Inspector General Randy Meyer said this week the office will consider reissuing its report after it was suggested that Taft's criminal record had been expunged and was shielded from public view. Taft’s lawyer says no request has ever been made to seal his record.
