The Dispatch is reporting that the Ohio GOP FINALLY has a candidate for AG: Don Michael Crites.

I did a little research and it turns out that Mr. Crites has some scandals in his past that sound surprisingly similiar to the stuff we just left behind with Marc Dann.

In 1991 Crites, serving as the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, hired a woman named Brenda L Dodrill as an assistant U.S. attorney “despite the fact that she had been licensed to practice law only since November 1988 and had no trial experience.”

And why would he do that? Because Dodrill was sleeping with Columbus Mayor Buck Rinehart who was still married to his wife Carol at the time.

Sex scandals. Hiring inexperienced friends. I thought we’d put all that behind us.
