So, apparently, there are a ton of people in State government and the Columbus Dispatch who are interested in reading about Nash’s romantic relationship with the House Republicans’ Communication Director Megan Piwowar.  Seriously, the #1 and #3 posts read today was just about them, and that’s mostly from people from the Dispatch and State Government computers (naughty, naughty) was reading about them.

On Sunday, with much fanfare, the Cleveland Plain Dealer announced that they were forming a “partnership” with PolitiFact:

PolitiFact Ohio is a joint venture of The Plain Dealer; its online affiliate, cleveland.com; and PolitiFact.com, a national Pulitzer Prize-winning website that helps sort out the true from the false in politics.

Our reporters and editors, working on PolitiFact’s scale, will examine the accuracy of politicians’ claims, advertisements, speeches, talking points and accusations.
