"The Thomas Noe investment scandal in Ohio was revealed in early 2005 in part by Toledo, Ohio
newspaper The Blade. The Ohio government's Bureau of Workers' Compensation fund (BWC)
invested hundreds of millions of dollars in high risk or unconventional investment vehicles run by
people closely connected to the Ohio Republican Party who had made large campaign
contributions to many senior Republican party officials."
"A rare coin investment fund attracted particular scrutiny after it was reported that two coins
worth more than $300,000 had been lost. Further investigation then revealed that coins worth
$10-$12 million were missing and that only $13 million of the original $50 million invested could
be accounted for. Tom Noe was charged with running a criminal enterprise, the theft of $13
million from the fund, and of keeping a second set of books to cover for it."
