The catalog, provided to the FBI and news media outlets, lists everything removed from Rosenberger’s state offices on May 11, a month after his resignation took effect.
The inventory demonstrates Rosenberger’s fondness for American history, presidential politics, football and knick-knacks.
Among the artwork removed was a painting of presidents playing poker with Rosenberger overlooking the table.

Bobble heads removed: Teddy Roosevelt, former Ohio House speaker Bill Batchelder, Ohio Highway Patrol trooper, former Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee and 10 lawmakers or staff members.
