The Plain Dealer reported that a witness in the Jimmy Dimora corruption trial said he accepted a bribe from State Sen. Tom Patton, who lives in Strongsville and represents Solon.

Patton denied the allegation when he spoke to the newspaper.

"I flatly deny it," the Strongsville Republican told the Plain Dealer. "I don't have $10,000 to give anybody. It just didn't happen."

The allegation came from J. Kevin Kelley, a former school board member in Parma. Kelley testified that the bribe was intended to help a company Patton consults for win a paper copier contract.
