A rising star in Ohio politics Freshman Ohio Rep. W. Carlton Weddington served in many offices including Vice Chair of the Local Government committee, the powerful Finance, Education, Agriculture Committees, and Ohio MLK, Jr. Commission, and was an officer of the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus.  Weddington was appointed to the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee and the Death Penalty Task Force.

 

It all came crashing down when he was convicted of bribery and campaign fraud.

Objectives:

Learn how politics structure relationships to evade detection and recognize the red flags of fraud in government environments. Discover how an otherwise honest and productive public servant wanted to achieve so badly that he allowed himself to be compromised. And above all, realize that you need to avoid thinking “the rules don’t apply to me.”

 

Major Subjects:

After serving 2 years in prison, Weddington will detail how to identify red flags of political corruption….. How easy it is to believe you are not compromising yourself? Why allow yourself to be corrupted? How he got caught in an FBI sting? How he dealt with the media, colleagues, family and friends? What was prison like for a professional? How other legislators, government employees, interested individuals can avoid the same poor decisions? How he circumvented the myriad of rules, regulations and controls?
