Ohio's Attorney General Marc Dan was accused of inter-office relations with his scheduler and mismanagement of sexual harassment violations by his team, Anthony Gutierrez, general services director, and Leo Jennings III, communications director. Top Democrats urged him to resign:
Dann can no longer function in that office because of a litany of management failings and ethical breaches -- including an affair with an employee.
Forced out of the Democratic party and threatened by impeachment, after only 17 months in office, he resigned on May 14,2008.
Because he resigned before September of this year, a run-off election will be held in November to elect a new AG, but Thomas R. Winters, Dann's top assistant, immediately took over as acting attorney general for the time being.
Strickland said he hasn't considered who he will pick to serve until Ohioans choose a replacement in November, but added that he would start the process immediately. He said the next attorney general should possess 'maturity, experience and management ability' and be someone with 'great integrity.'
Strickland is a hot commodity. Hopefully he will have a chance to pick an appropriate replacement before he is swooped up as Vice President by Obama... or Clinton.
