Breaking: Ted Says No Deal

On May 13, 2008 By

I’m hearing Ted just signed the bill to allow the IG to move forward with a special investigation of the AG’s office immediately.

So Ted says no dice.


Full Story...

The Dispatch is reporting that Marc Dann is trying to “negotiate the terms of his resignation.”

In short: Dann told legislative leaders that he will quit as long as the they don’t let the Inspector General investigate his office.

That “would cause all sorts of problems”, said Dann.

More problems that the ones we already know about?

Jesus Christ, Marc. What else are you hiding?

It’s now being reported that Marc is backing away from resigning because the legislature won’t commit to not investigating his office fully. They refused this condition and he is now capitulating on resigning. Apparently there is much more to find and Dann could be in more trouble than we know. I hope they stick to this and Marc gets what’s coming to him.

The story is developing for sure. I’d not be sure of a Dann resignation until you hear it from him.

Just go away, Marc.

PlunderPedia: Dann Remorse

On May 13, 2008 By

Dann Remorse: That feeling you get when you know you were right to oppose a political candidate from the start but gave them the benefit of the doubt because they were on your side and you come to realize how right you were! Similar to the popular phrase “Buyer’s Remorse”.

I’ve been suffering from Dann Remorse for some time.

…but at least I have this collector’s tee!

…and now it’s time for another Plunderbund video dedication. This one goes out to Plunderbund readers from soon to be ex-Attorney General Marc Dann:

Thanks Marc!

The Plain Dealer has the scoop…

Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann is expected to announce his resignation later today, The Plain Dealer has learned. He planned to break the news to his senior staff this afternoon.


This means there will be a special election on Nov. 4th. Until then, Governor Strickland gets to name someone to replace Dann.

House Democrats filed articles of impeachment against Dann this morning accusing him of “misconduct in office rising to the level of malfeasance, neglect, nonfeasance, gross neglect of duty, improper exercise of authority and gross morality.”

The nine counts include:

Obstructed the internal investigation into allegations of sexual harassment in his office.

Willfully and intentionally issued misleading statements under oath.

Neglected to perform the duties of his office and by his own admission was not competent or qualified for the job.

Knew or should have known that his own admitted sexual affair with an employee contributed to and allowed a […]

I am really not looking forward to the next few weeks.

We know Hillary is going to win tonight in West Virginia- a state that is tailor-made for her: “The population is 97% white with the lowest percentage of college graduates of any state in the country.”

And, despite the fact that the victory will be meaningless, she will continue battling on. Claiming she is more electable.

Hopefully Obama has been saving up a bunch of superdelegate announcements for tomorrow morning. Something to steal away the news cycle from Clinton’s meaningless win in WV.

In all the hubbub over Dann – I guess it’s good to be focusing on more local issues for a change – we’ve overlooked the fact that John Boehner has been doing a heck of a job gumming up the works in the House, even getting the Republicans to vote against motherhood.

On Wednesday afternoon, the House had just voted, 412 to 0, to pass H. Res. 1113, “Celebrating the role of mothers in the United States and supporting the goals and ideals of Mother’s Day,” when Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-Kan.), rose in protest.

“Mr. Speaker, I move to […]
