The Dispatch is reporting that the Ohio AFL-CIO wants Dann to resign…

The state’s largest union — one that endorsed him in 2006 — is calling for Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann’s ouster.

Joe Rugola, president of the 700,000-member Ohio AFL-CIO, said the union is joining the call by Gov. Ted Strickland and other top Democrats for the embattled attorney general to resign.

“The attorney general’s conduct in this entire matter, and the pattern of conduct in his office over the past months, mandates that he leave his office immediately,” Rugola said in a statement.

“It is a sad day for Ohio, for Marc’s family and friends and for the entire Mahoning Valley community.” Rugola added. “But there is no excuse for the reprehensible conduct which led to this crisis and which has brought disgrace upon Marc Dann’s office.”
