Ohio Dems to AG Dann: Resign or Be Impeached



Events are moving fast in the scandals engulging Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann. From The Toledo Blade, posted this afternoon. "COLUMBUS -- Gov. Ted Strickland and other high-ranking Ohio Democrats Monday joined Republicans in the chorus for Attorney General Marc Dann to immediately resign and threatened to lead the march toward impeachment if he does not."

A letter demanding resignation was sent Sunday night by Governor Ted Strickland, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, Lt. Governor Lee Fisher, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, Treasurer Richard Cordray, House Minority Leader Joyce Beatty, Senate Minority Leader Ray Miller and Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern. Text here. It's tough: "Sadly, we no longer have even the most remote hope that you can continue to effectively serve as Attorney General and that is why we are asking for your resignation."

UPDATE (5:20 p.m.), from AP: "Gov. Ted Strickland told reporters that Democrats will begin drafting an impeachment resolution against Attorney General Marc Dann right away."
