FirstEnergy Asks Former CEO to Return $56 Million

FirstEnergy Corp. is asking its former CEO Chuck Jones to return the $56 million it paid him, according to reports. The company — which has admitted to bribing Ohio officials during the legislature’s consideration of the scandal-plagued House Bill 6 — made the repayment demand to Jones last November.

“Investors suing the company have identified Jones as an orchestrator of the bribery operation,” the Ohio Capital Journal reports. Jones was fired in October 2020 as a result of his role in the HB 6 scandal. 7/28/2022
