    Et tu, Sherrod, Zack and Charlie? (And more: a Kucinich aide leaves) Posted by Sabrina Eaton and Stephen Koff May 25, 2007 13:00PM Anti-war bloggers and web site activists are fuming over yesterday's congressional vote to keep funding the Iraq war without requiring a pull-out date. They say they feel betrayed by Democrats -- including Sen. Sherrod Brown and Reps. Zack Space and Charlie Wilson -- who won office opposing the war, then voted to keep sending money that, activists say, merely keeps the war going. Off with their heads, say some, including, a progressive group seeking defeat of...

    CLEVELAND - Former U.S. Rep. James Traficant, expelled from Congress in 2002 after his bribery and racketeering conviction, is now dabbling in watercolors and acrylic rather than politics. The Ohio Democrat, who served nine terms in the House of Representatives, is serving eight years in federal prison after being convicted on a 2001 indictment. He's passing the time by painting. Traficant is currently selling 12 paintings, which feature pastoral scenes and horses, for $140 to $205 on the Web site The site's name comes from Traficant's practice of ending his often flamboyant congressional speeches by saying "Beam me up!"...

    The attractive new substitute teacher at Strongsville High School proposed a novel incentive to her class of special-education students: Improve your grades and win a dinner date with the teacher. No one says the contest was fixed, but the winner was the 17-year-old captain of the football team, Steven Bradigan. Dinner at the Dairy Queen was nothing special, but what happened afterwards was enough to melt his ice cream. In the car in the parking lot at Westfield SouthPark mall, Bradigan said the 36-year-old teacher, Christine Scarlett, wrapped her arms around him and tried to kiss him. "I said, 'Whoa!'...

    MENTOR, Ohio — Eric Montgomery always pictured himself coming home from war in triumph, arm-in-arm with his big brother, fellow Marine Lance Cpl. Brian Montgomery. Brian was his idol, his boyhood protector and his barracks mate in the desert of western Iraq. The two did fly home together last week, but it was the worst journey of Eric's young life. The plane that carried him also carried the body of his brother, who died Aug. 1 at age 26 during an ambush that killed all six members of Brian's sniper patrol. It was left to Eric, at age 21, to...

    Wednesday in the Senate, George Voinovich broke down in tears. Tears. He broke down in tears over the upcoming vote on John Bolton for U.N. Ambassador. Tuesday Ohio Senator Mike Dewine joined the usual north eastern liberal Republicans plus John McCain, Lindsay Graham, and John Warner in thwarting Majority Leader Frist’s implementation of the constitution option to end the filibuster of judicial nomination. Coming in the next few weeks the new budget for the state of Ohio, which will include making half of the temporary sales tax increase permanent, will be passed by the Republican dominated legislature and supported by...

    Carmella DeCesare, the girlfriend of Browns quarterback Jeff Garcia and the reigning Playboy Playmate of the Year, went on trial this morning for a misdemeanor charge of assault. The charge stems from a scuffle with Garcia's ex-girlfriend, Kristen Hine, at the Tramp nightclub in Cleveland on Aug. 21. Hine told police that DeCesare kicked her in the head. Testimony in the case was expected to last all day and possibly last until Tuesday.
  • Cleveland Browns to honour former player killed in Vietnam War

    CLEVELAND (AP) - The Browns will pay tribute Sunday to a former player who died in the Vietnam War and has gone unrecognized by the NFL for decades. It has long been reported that Bob Kalsu, a Buffalo Bills lineman, was the only former NFL player killed while serving in Vietnam. But it recently came to the attention of the Pro Football Hall of Fame that Air Force Maj. Don Steinbrunner, a rookie offensive tackle with the Browns in 1953, died in Vietnam in 1967. Steinbrunner, who joined the Air Force ROTC while at Washington State University, was called to...
  • Cuyahoga board deflates vote suspicions (more on Cleveland vote tally discrepancies)

    A confusing counting method employed by Cuyahoga County elections officials appears to inflate the vote totals in some suburbs, further fueling suspicion on the Internet about the integrity of Ohio's unofficial election results. To a casual observer, Cuyahoga County seemed to have more votes than voters in some areas on Election Day - a 90,000-vote disparity being hyped in cyberspace under headlines such as "Stolen Election" and "Ohio Fraud." The problem stems from an election canvassing report posted on the county's Web site, where the number of "ballots cast" in several suburbs exceeds the number of registered voters. For example,...

    I work in dowtown Cleveland and just returned home from there. The Kerry rally is right across the street from the building where I work. The appearance is quite different than what you are seeing on C-SPAN. It is a relatively small area with a relatively small and quiet crowd. For the size of Cleveland, the rally is extremely disappointing. The usual union people and liberals are basically the only ones there. Compare this to the crowds and enthusiasm that W draws. Our great President WILL WIN OHIO!

    I arrived at the Ed Herman for Congress campaign headquarters at 6 pm and found more volunteers than phones. They had eighteen phone lines set up to make calls encouraging their voters to get out there tomorrow and vote to re-elect President George W. Bush and to send Ed Herman to Congress to replace Dennis Kucinich. The eighteen phone lines were already taken and 7 more people stayed to make calls on cell phones. Approximately 20 people were sent home because there were no more phones. Most people were planning to come back tomorrow to continue the get out the...

    From an post I spotted on a certain leftist website: snip I learned this morning that tomorrow morning's edition of the Cleveland Plain Dealer will endorse George Bush for a second four-year term. What makes this particularly disgraceful and quite terrifying is that the seven-member editorial board of the PD voted 5-2 to endorse John Kerry. The publisher overruled them and announced the paper would support Bush. Similarly, the Lorain Journal editors were told that either they endorse George Bush or they endorse no one. So, they are endorsing no one.

    It has previously received media attention that Franklin country had this alarming issue, but I just heard a report on the radio that more Ohio counties have as many, or more registered voters as census the projected population. Geauga county was cited specifically in this report. Could this posibly be attributed to some amazing new level of voter interest? I'm starting to become extremely skeptical!
