Elections Board Member Suspended

(Toledo, OH) Ohio's top elections official gets involved again in an elections board he calls 'dysfunctional.'

The Lucas County Board of Elections will operate, for now, with only three members amid the controversy over the hiring of a new director. 

Secretary of State Jon Husted suspended James Hartley from the board Tuesday, citing noncompliance with an order to turn over emails and text messages related to the reorganization. 

Hartley is at the center of an investigation into alleged backroom deals with Lucas County Republican party leaders and improper communication about hiring decisions.
