The best-case scenario is an official gets arrested and everyone they know sees it in the news, as with Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder.

In his case, an alleged racketeering conspiracy involves energy company donations flowing through Generation Now, a dark money group formed by his longtime associate, with part of the money helping campaigns of legislative candidates who supported Householder becoming speaker.
