Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel is requesting an investigation into whether banks overcharged four of Ohio's five pension funds and the state's injured worker insurance fund for foreign currency services.
In a letter Tuesday to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, Mandel says banks may have manipulated exchange rates on foreign investments over the past dozen years, costing Ohio pensioners and businesses tens of millions of dollars.
Ohio State University has evacuated four buildings, including the main library, because of bomb threats e-mailed to the FBI. FBI spokesman Michael Brooks says the threat was sent to the bureau's Washington headquarters Tuesday morning.

Four Ohio cities made a dubious list last week. According to a report, Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Dayton are among the top 15 most bedbug infested cities in the country.
The report came from the pest control company, Terminix, and when it came out, it was icky news for Ohioans. More than any other state, Ohio appears to be having a big bedbug problem. But Jen House, with Ohio Department of Health says it's important to remember that this study was based on the number of calls Terminix received from across the state.
