Corrupt Dem Swing-State Lawman Gets Wrist-Slap

Former Ohio AG loses law license for six months
The Ohio Supreme Court on November 20 determined that former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann, a Democrat, engaged in conduct that reflected adversely on his fitness to practice law.

Dann, a Democrat who resigned as attorney general in 2008 after just 17 scandal-ridden months in office, has since worked as a private practice attorney in Cleveland. He had pleaded with the high court for leniency.

The Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline recommended the suspension, noting that Dann also had a prior legal reprimand from the court in 2004 for failing to properly prepare as a lawyer on a case.

The court unanimously rejected Dann's request for a stayed suspension and ruled that, because he was an elected official at the time of his misconduct, he should be held to a higher standard.
