So-called “Troopergate” dominoes keep falling. The Dispatch has a post indicating Ohio House Speaker Armand Budish has come out in support of Ohio Public Safety Director Cathy Collins-Taylor, who was a target of what is now a discredited investigation by Ohio Inspector General Thomas Charles. According to The Columbus Dispatch, Budish says:

Based on what I have seen, I don?t know a reason why she shouldn?t be confirmed.

This follows on the heels of a vote of confidence from the Ohio F.O.P., who also openly criticized Thomas Charles.


Ron O’brien is “ruminating whether criminal charges are warranted”. You don’t say! LOL.
