Steve Huffman

The top leader of the Ohio Senate, Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina), has rebuked the racist comments made by Sen. Steve Huffman (R-Tipp City) during a committee hearing.

UPDATE: Sen. Steve Huffman has issued an apology on his Facebook page, in which he writes: "I recognize that my choice of words was unacceptable and hurtful. I apologize, and I make no excuses."

A Republican state senator from the Dayton area has lost his job as an emergency room doctor after asking a racially insensitive question at a hearing on a resolution to declare racism a public health crisis.
