OH-16: State Senator John Boccieri: AG Dann should resign immediately
This whole Attorney General Marc Dann situation gets harder and harder to stomach with each passing day. I'm glad this statement hit my desk before I read it somewhere else.
State Senator John Boccieri: Attorney General Marc Dann should resign Immediately
Today State Senator John Boccieri, Democratic candidate in Ohio's 16th Congressional District, called for Attorney General Marc Dann to resign from office:
Ohio has been subjected to statement after statement from Dann defending his staff and himself. As a "reasonable person", and that will matter. I have to stand with Senator John Boccieri on this whole case...It is what it is! One doesn't comb transcripts and walk away with some false sense of reality. Personally, I think Ohio's 16th Congressional District Democratic Candidate State Senator Major John Boccieri has done the smart thing...he held back and read the facts before coming to a conclusion and he has distanced himself from the epicenter of the after-shocks yet to come.
"I am outraged that the Attorney General of the state of Ohio has neglected the duty and honor of public service," Senator Boccieri said. "The cronyism and lack of attentiveness to protocol and detail in Attorney General Dann's hiring practices has led us to this tragic moment in Ohio's history. I feel for his wife Alyssa and his children, who must endure the embarrassment he has caused to them, and the people of the state of Ohio.
"We support the ongoing investigation to determine whether any criminal lines have been crossed. However, after combing through the sordid details of the investigation transcripts, it is clear that ethical and moral lines have been disregarded. For this reason, I call upon Marc Dann to resign immediately."
