The Dispatch is reporting that Marc Dann is trying to “negotiate the terms of his resignation.”

In short: Dann told legislative leaders that he will quit as long as the they don’t let the Inspector General investigate his office.

That “would cause all sorts of problems”, said Dann.

More problems that the ones we already know about?

Jesus Christ, Marc. What else are you hiding?

It’s now being reported that Marc is backing away from resigning because the legislature won’t commit to not investigating his office fully. They refused this condition and he is now capitulating on resigning. Apparently there is much more to find and Dann could be in more trouble than we know. I hope they stick to this and Marc gets what’s coming to him.

The story is developing for sure. I’d not be sure of a Dann resignation until you hear it from him.

Just go away, Marc.

I’ve been suffering from Dann Remorse for some time.

…but at least I have this collector’s tee!

Neglected to perform the duties of his office and by his own admission was not competent or qualified for the job.

Knew or should have known that his own admitted sexual affair with an employee contributed to and allowed a […]

Not that it’s the first time I’ve ever disagreed with Brian Rothenberg, but it’s time to do so again. Brian and I are famous for our squaring off over a dinner with Barack Obama. We even had a few roundabouts in the office when I worked at ProgressOhio.

So here we go again.

Brian’s latest Shadows on High column reads like a defense of Marc Dann. The argument? It’s just SEX (and the media are obsessing over it).

Well, it’s not just about sex. The lurid details about pajamas or no pajamas aside, this story is about […]

“It is a sad […]
