News that state Rep. Larry Householder, R-Perry County, has been convicted of four alcohol-related offenses in the last 16 years, and that the three earlier charges for some unexplained reason did not appear on his driving record, has sent shockwaves throughout the state and could impact the November election.

Householder, whose 78th District includes part of Athens County, acknowledged late last week in a Cincinnati Enquirer article that he had been arrested and found guilty four times of alcohol-related charges. When he faced his last charge of DUI in 1997, though, the previous charges did not appear on his record with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Householder could not explain why the previous arrests did not appear on his record.
