COLUMBUS: An Ohio state lawmaker filed an elections complaint against Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, her gubernatorial campaign and her husband on Monday alleging the mishandling of a $3  million loan.

Rep. Mike Duffey, a fellow Republican, asked the Ohio Elections Commission to investigate a $3 million check from Taylor’s campaign to Taylor’s husband, Donzell Taylor, that was part of the candidate’s campaign finance filing on Thursday.

Donzell Taylor is the head of Welty Building Co. and also is the outgoing chairman of the Greater Akron Chamber’s board of directors.

The case appears to hinge on whether the Green couple co-mingled their money, as marital property, or held it separately. Michael Duchesne, Mary Taylor’s campaign spokesman, said the loan and repayment were both legal.
