Larry Householder’s Website Seized; Transformed into Pro-LGBTQ+ & Racial Justice Hub

Having been expelled from the Ohio House of Representatives on June 16, disgraced former Speaker of the House Larry Householder probably had a lot on his mind that day other than renewing his candidate website.

Enter: inspired activism.

When the domain’s ownership lapsed that day, an anonymous group immediately seized on the opportunity, bought the site, and transformed it into a resource hub for social justice issues that run counter to Householder’s voting record.

Visitors to FriendsofLarryHouseholder.comformerly a PAC that raised millions of dollars for the Zanesville Republicancan now find more information about his arrest and alleged involvement in a $60 million racketeering scheme, the largest in Ohio’s history.

Then visitors can peruse “Things Larry (Very Likely*) Doesn’t Like,” which includes information on a variety of issues Householder opposed, including the Ohio Fairness Act, the national Equality Act, critical race theory, environmental justice, and reproductive freedom.

The site also features several Drag Story Time videos, an homage to Householder’s move in 2019 to ban these events from a Newark, Ohio library, claiming they “would teach teenage boys how to become drag queens.”

The “Friends of Larry Householder” website does not feature any contact information for the site’s new owners. 🔥
