Is the Ohio Republican Party Corrupt?

Missing Funds, Financial Missteps, Broken Bylaws, and Poor Management Hinder Ohio Republican State Party

Mark Bainbridge is a retired partner from the Big Four Accounting firm of Ernst & Young. He is also a member of the Ohio Republican State Central Committee. Bainbridge and four other members-JoAnn Campbell, Joe Miller, Laura Rosenberger and Denise Verdi have filed a lawsuit against Ohio Republican Party Chairman Robert Paduchik, accusing him of misreporting over $3 million in missing funds, without adequate explanation, among other violations. Bainbridge and the other plaintiffs demand accountability from Paduchik and other party leaders.

Among other findings, the plaintiffs detail significant funds that have gone missing from ORP financial statements without adequate explanation, including but not limited to $1.7 million that disappeared in 2017, $437,000 in 2019, $638,000 in “Accounts Receivable” that were established in 2017 and 2018 and then written off in 2021, and $271,000 this year-a total of more than $3 million. Furthermore, the plaintiffs claim Paduchik wrongly supported candidates who were unendorsed by the ORP and improperly removed the plaintiffs from their committee assignments including the Audit Committee and Fiscal Review Committee after they raised financial questions and complaints about his chairmanship. Also named in the lawsuit is ORP Treasurer Dave Johnson, who was responsible for overseeing the unexplained missing funds.
