Ohio ends 2-year session peppered with misbehavior

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Four-term Dayton Democrat Clayton Luckie's refusal to resign his Ohio House seat while awaiting trial on 49 counts of theft, corruption and money laundering has angered Ohio Republicans.

But Luckie wasn't the only state lawmaker who's had a run-in with authorities this 2-year General Assembly, one of the most misbehaving broods in recent years.

State Rep. W. Carlton Weddington is serving three years in prison for a bribery conviction, the first for a state lawmaker since 1912.

Green Township Republican Robert Mecklenborg resigned his House seat in June 2011 after revelations surrounding a drunken driving arrest. State Rep. Jarrod Martin, of Beavercreek, also faced a drunken driving charge this session.

And state Sen. Kris Jordan's wife reported a domestic dispute to police in July 2011, though Jordan was never charged.
