OHIO INVESTMENT SCANDAL
Ohio inspector general's report on 'Coingate' scandal, promised 2 years ago, still unreleased
Reported by: Associated Press

Ohio's government watchdog has yet to fulfill a promise made nearly two years ago to release an investigative report on the investment scandal that engulfed the state in 2005.
Inspector General Randall Meyer pledged in early 2012 to complete the report left unissued by his predecessor who oversaw the investigation into the scandal dubbed "Coingate."
Former coin dealer and Republican fundraiser Tom Noe (NOH'-ee) is serving an 18-year prison sentence for stealing from a $50 million rare-coin fund he oversaw for the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation. The scandal led to 19 convictions, including then-Gov. Bob Taft.
