Ohio AG Marc Dann Resigns



Guess he was all out of teeth to pull. From AP:

COLUMBUS, Ohio --Ohio's attorney general has resigned amid the scandal of a sexual harassment investigation in his office and his extramarital affair.

Marc Dann has been under pressure of possible impeachment and announced he was stepping down on Wednesday.

The 46-year-old Democrat at first refused to resign, despite demands by Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland and others within his party.

More from Reuters, and WSJ Law Blog.

As of 6:15 p.m., his official website is still up.

With Dann gone, whom will the New York Times now pick as the next Eliot Spitzer? Forbes had a round-up.

P.S. Oh, yes. Jonathan Adler has lots of Dann-related links from his redoubt at Case Western.

P.P.S. The memo to AG office employees.
