He won’t as Rats never do. Plus, their argument is going to be that Bob “Tax `em” Taft plead guilty to a felony and stayed in office. Thanks again Taft.

Wonder what his party affiliation is? It’s not listed anywhere in the story.

Unbelievable. I bet if he were a Republican instead of an America-Hating Democrat, it would’ve been in the freaking headline.

Somehow ‘admitted on Friday that he had an affair...’ would be so much less vivid than ‘had an affair with a subordinate on Friday at a press conference’.

Bob Taft plead guilty to a misdemeanor. As much as I disliked Taft, there was never any hint at this low level of behavior in his office.

The reporting is in response to two news conferences held today (Friday). When would you like them to report it?

Based on faulty punctuation, the first sentence actually says that the affair took place at the press conference. I don't think that's what the article meant to say. But if it did, that was a special kind of press conference.

Dann's done plenty of stupid things in his short time as Ohio Attorney General but that's not one of them. You're thinking of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

And, from the AP's story on this:
Leader of both parties were critical of Attorney General Marc Dann, one of several Democrats swept into office in 2006 after a scandal over state investments sullied Republicans. He apologized to his wife and supporters but promised not to step down.

The first hour of Rush today was pre-empted for a call-in program on the Youngstown station where this joker Dann and his buddies he brought with him from Youngstown to the A.G.’s office are from. All the old Democrats who listened to his press conference which preceded the call-in program were p.o.’d and thought he should resign or be re-called. The funniest phone call was one where some old guy said this was more embarrassing to Youngstown than when the Mafia ran everything and everybody knew it.

Ah, God, a veritable rogue's gallery of slimeballs. Like with Clinton, you've got to wonder why a woman would lower herself to drop for bums like these. I guess it's the power/fear angle. Where are the feminists and their outrage on this? They ran Bob Packwood out of town on a rail for lesser offenses. Guess the fems will invoke the Clintonian “one free grope” rule, and let them off the hook.

You forgot Paul “Hot Pants” Morrison in Kansas. Three prominent recent sex maniac state Attorneys-General, all rodents. But Ted Strickland is such a hypocrite. THIS has him demand resignation, but this a$$hole didn’t FEEL Clintoon’s behavior warranted removal when he was a House member. I say keep Danny boy and let the rodents choke on him. THEY elected him as the “ethical reaction” to Boob Taft and the OH GOP. What a joke.

Exactly. I didn’t want Morrison resigning in KS, either. These creeps need to be the pubic (sic) face of the rodents.

Yes. There were 2 of them in KS, him and the scumbag Lt Governor, Mark Parkinson (with Parkinson being the bigger traitor). Obama may pick the moonbat Governor Gilligan-Sebelius as his VP, so that scum may rise to the top...

I supported Montgomery in 06, even though she is not my ideal Republican. But none of this is surprising, especially since Dann is a Youngstown ‘rat. Those are always worse than the usual ones.

And he's not only LT traitor Bohlinger in MT is too, although he says he's still a Republican.

Makes me wonder if Bobama will have a couple RINOs on his short list. Could you imagine the media orgasm? Yuck.

I could see Barry picking Chuck Hagel. However, saying that, the rodent base would be as happy to have any Republican, leftist or no, as we would be if McCain picked Lieberman.

The rodents don’t usually like converts (except for the first 5 minutes following their switch so they can bash the GOP with them). I was recalling one of their few convert success stories, the ultraliberal RINO apostate from Flint, Michigan, Don Riegle. He first rode the anti-LBJ wave to Congress in ‘66 as a Republican and he later switched to the Dems in ‘73 because his voting record was indistinguishable from them and won the open Senate race in 1976. Even after 18 years in the Senate, some hardcore MI Dems always viewed him with suspicion despite his pristine Socialist record... all because he hadn’t ALWAYS been a Democrat.

Traficant was a character. Probably did some shady stuff, though nothing horrible, and I never doubted his love for his country and his disgust at the garbage going on in Congress (that was far worse than any petty penny ante stuff claimed of him). I’d vote for Traficant sitting in prison for President before I’d vote for just about any other rodent... and most of your RINOs (including our current nominee) and that’s really saying something.

It was all for show. Traficant pretending to be anti-corruption is like Obama pretending not to believe what Jeremiah Wright says.
