Lawmaker has court date over OSU tix

A former state lawmaker who has admitted he bought Ohio State University football tickets with campaign money and sold them for a personal profit is scheduled to be arraigned in Franklin County Municipal Court on related charges next week.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said Thursday that former state Rep. John Widowfield is expected to plead guilty on Tuesday to filing a false financial disclosure statement and converting campaign funds into personal use.
