Silly Ohio Attorney General Won't Quit, Makes Things Awkward
Ohio Attorney General Marc "Hawaiian Pizza" Dann, whose admission of a sex affair with a young staffer last week was the latest in a series of inappropriate Dann sex stories, is under pressure to step down. A lot of pressure. You know how much pressure? This much: "All statewide Democratic elected officials and legislative leaders are calling on embattled Attorney General Marc Dann to resign from office." And he's a Democrat too! Dann has heard their calls, and he has responded "No I ain't goin' nowhere, lamebots."
A letter from Gov. Ted Strickland and Democratic leaders to Dann says it will begin impeachment proceedings if Dann doesn't resign. What fun! Dann's looking forward to it, and in the meantime, he'll be sitting somewhere, doing something, with his sleeves rolled somehow:
He said he told Strickland "that he and the other officeholders, as well as the members of the legislature, should continue to expect that we will continue to provide high-quality legal services to all of them. I told the governor that we will continue to make our law enforcement partnerships work to protect the people of the state of Ohio.
"I am in the office, have rolled up my sleeves and am working on behalf of the people of the state of Ohio. I hope you will do the same."
Now watch me hit this drive.
