Neil Clark, a 67-year-old political lobbyist, was discovered dead on the side of the road by a passing motorist.
Clark, who is regarded as one of the most powerful lobbyists in the nation, was involved in a major bribery scandal involving Larry Householder, the former Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives.

In a crazy bribery scheme sponsored by an oil corporation, the two men were arrested and both pleaded “not guilty.”
According to officials, the following occurred:
Householder and Clark are accused of being involved in a scheme to pass HB6, a law that bailed out two Ohio power plants operated by a former FirstEnergy subsidiary. According to charging records, the money went through political parties and was used to buy campaign ads, recruit consultants, and finance other activities to help Householder win his leadership role and press for HB6 to become law.
As a result of this investigation, Clark was convicted and charged with racketeering last year.
Was he on the verge of flipping? Was he going to try to save himself by pointing fingers at others?
Officials said on Thursday that they suspect a former Columbus lobbyist charged in connection with the House Bill 6 investigation committed suicide earlier this week.
The Collier County Medical Examiner’s Office will make the final decision on the cause of death, according to Michelle Batten, a spokeswoman for the Collier County Sheriff’s Office in Florida. According to her, police are treating Neil Clark’s death as an apparent suicide and do not suspect foul play.
On Thursday, the sheriff’s office also released a revised version of an incident report detailing their preliminary investigation into Clark’s death. The report was previously made public on Tuesday, but it was heavily censored.
According to the paper, police discovered Clark, 67, lying on the ground about 400 feet off the highway and 350 feet from his car by the brush line by a retention pond in the area near his home in Naples, Florida, about 11:30 a.m. on Monday. Clark seemed to be “beyond assistance,” according to a passerby who called the cops.
Clark’s body had a single gunshot wound to the head when police discovered him, and a handgun was discovered near his body, according to police.
It seems strange that he would commit suicide on the side of the road, but anything could happen, particularly if he was afraid of going to jail for this “racketeering” charge.
He may not have wanted his body discovered by his relatives.
However, there’s still a lot of reason to be suspicious, particularly because he was such a key figure in a major scandal involving a lot of money and some very powerful people.
But, aside from that, I believe that our government as a whole is just one big disgusting swamp run by corporations, special interests, and corrupt politicians, regardless of which side of the aisle these politicians are on. Nobody is speaking for us, not even those who claim to be on our side.
In fact, President Trump was the only person who really embodied us, which is why he had to be removed.
