From the Columbus Dispatch‘s Daily Briefing blog:

Strickland didn’t have an answer today when asked by a reporter whether he would reappoint Charles as inspector general if given the chance.

I think that?s a hypothetical question that I choose not to answer at this time,? the governor said.

Thomas Charles, who’s already a double-dipper who is collecting a state retirement pension while drawing a paycheck, should be planning his retirement party.

Strickland just reappointed Cathy Collins-Taylor and publicly expressed his sadness in how Cathy Collins-Taylor.

Charles will probably be announcing his retirement before the end of the year.
