COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A former state deputy treasurer and a Columbus lawyer have been indicted on charges alleging they engaged in a bribery scheme during the tenure of then-Ohio Treasurer Kevin Boyce.
A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted Amer Ahmad, who served as Boyce's top deputy, on numerous charges including money laundering. Attorney and bank lobbyist Mohammed Noure Alo was indicted on conspiracy and other charges.
Ahmad's relationship to Alo figured heavily in the state treasurer race in 2010, which Boyce, a Democrat, lost to Republican Josh Mandel.
A Mandel ad and Ohio GOP mailers questioned the relationship between the two, emphasizing the lobbyists first name -- Mohammed -- and suggesting he and Boyce attended the same mosque, though Boyce is Christian. Alo and Ahmad are Muslim. Mandel is Jewish.
