Kasich Idiot You might recall that while some were challenging the constitutional eligibility of former Kasich Ohio Department of Development Director Mark Kvamme to serve in Kasich’s Cabinet, we also suggested that the same constitutional prohibition applied to Kasich’s appointment to head the Ohio EPA, former Indiana state official Scott Nally.

Today, the Associated Press concluded that the Kasich Administration’s legal counsel apparently concluded we were correct:

Gov. John Kasich withdrew paperwork nominating an EPA director from out of state and resubmitted it after the man registered as an Ohio voter, according to state records obtained by The Associated Press.

The move last week involving Ohio Environmental Protection Agency appointee Scott J. Nally came three days after Kasich reassigned another out-of-state Cabinet director amid questions that his residency made the appointment illegal.

Nally’s situation is different, since he moved to Ohio to take the EPA job and intended to keep it for longer. He previously served as an assistant commissioner with Indiana’s environmental management department.

Kasich first submitted Nally’s appointment paperwork on Feb. 15. In a March 21 letter to Senate Clerk Vincent Keeran, the Republican governor asked for that paperwork to be withdrawn and replaced with new documentation. Records show Nally registered to vote in Franklin County on Feb. 17.

So now Nally is eligible to serve… but what about all the actions he’s taken as the head of the Ohio EPA until he became eligible to serve on March 17?

You know like that air permit Kasich made such a fuss about Nally signing during Kasich’s first week in office?

    So is no one gonna check out just how illegal all this is ?
    Cant something be done about the fact Kasich didnt go by the laws — twice he didnt–
    So what about all that DOD stuff and Jobsohio with Kvammes signature on that stuff — illegal ?? or not ?
    This is what gets me — the rules only apply to the little people — he is just gonna get away with more stuff if no challenges him
    Why is he above all of Ohios laws?

  • If there are any lawyers or retired judges out there who can add a legal opinion on this one, I’d sure appreciate it.

    There are no rules for them the evil Rethugs, their employees, nor for their real constituents (evil rich people and big business welfare queens) who have, are and will continue to rob us.

    I would think that the complaint would be by someone affected by specific action of the Director, such as an applicant that was denied a permit. Unless the law specific to the action provides otherwise, such as the decision to deny had to be made within a certain time period, the Director could just do a “do over” and reissue the order/action. I am not sure that anyone else would have standing to challenge without knowing more about the specific action the Director took while not eligible.

    Well at least you do not have to worry about Nally denying any permits, he would rubber stamp a corporations request to send crack pipe smoke out the chimney if it moved at the speed of business………..

  • Why does John Kasich hate Ohioans? He hate us so much he won’t even give jobs in his cabinet to Ohioans.

    Maybe because he’s still a Pennsylvanian at heart (however cold and black that heart may be).

    so far the only jobs growth kasich the terrible has to his credit are the ones that he has given to his business cronies from out of state. I guess the only people he is helping are the rich out of states if you live in Ohio your screwed.

    How many laws does this guy have to break before we see some evil Prince John perp walking? Or is this a civil matter? If we can’t recall him, maybe he is a big enough crook to go to jail.

    Oh, I forgot he is a Rethug; they don’t go to jail. They get reborn on Fixed News and work for evil extremist think tanks who think America is for the rich and evil big business ONLY!
