Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- The Ohio Supreme Court has stalled an investigation by the state's elections chief into a group pushing for a vote on electronic slot machines.
In a Tuesday decision, the court said Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner should not act on subpoenas issued to members of letohiovote.org until justices have decided if she has proper authority.
Letohiovote.org challenged Brunner after she launched an investigation last month into the source of the group's $1.55 million in funding from a Virginia company.
Spokesman Jeff Ortega said Brunner plans to go forward with its investigative inquiries into others.
That includes new models, the Virginia entity that made the donation, and norm cummings, a political strategist who registered the letohiovote.org web site.
