Utility regulator targeted by FBI saw a whirlwind rise



COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Sam Randazzo's rise from veteran utility lawyer to Public Utilities Commission of Ohio chairman has drawn new scrutiny after an eventful week. Randazzo resigned Friday after an FBI raid of his home and revelations that the firm of an Ohio utility regulator fitting his description received about $4 million early last year to end a six-year consulting contract with FirstEnergy, Ohio's largest electric utility. FirstEnergy's role in a $60 million bribery scheme involving ex-Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder is being investigated. Gov. Mike DeWine appointed Randazzo to the commission amid a swirl of closely timed resignations, appointments and votes.
