In a post last week, OH-16: State Senator John Boccieri: AG Dann should resign immediately State Senator John Boccieri expressed his "outrage" over the the behavior of Attorney General Marc Dann. On May 6, 2008, Senator Boccieri stated:
"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."
The Saga continues...

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.

The Ohio Attorney General announced today that conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh will not be indicted for voter fraud. You may recall that in the days leading up to the Ohio Democratic primary, Limbaugh encouraged the GOP faithful to cross-over and vote for Hillary as part of "Operation Chaos." While this news will come as a disappointment to many, the consolation prize - a landmark quotation from the Attorney General's office - is certainly sweet.
"We have no intention of prosecuting Rush Limbaugh because lying through your teeth and being stupid isn't a crime," said Leo Jennings, a spokesman for Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann.
The GOP faithful who followed Limbaugh's advice may not be so fortunate. Under Ohio law, primary voters must sign a form attesting under penalty of prosecution (a felony) that they support the principles of the party whose ballot they are requesting.

So was this just a simple cancel due to travel? Did Edwards cancel because he knows he will support Obama anyway? Did he cancel because Clinton swayed him and he does not want to hear Obama pitch? Did Obama cancel because he feels he does not need to pitch to Edwards?
Thoughts, ideas & comments please.

This weekend, famed outer of CIA agents Robert Novak dropped a juicy rumor:
Illinois Democrats close to Sen. Barack Obama are quietly passing the word that John Edwards would be named attorney general in an Obama administration.
Any truth to it? As an Edwards fan, I'd love it. But of all the people you'd want in the loop on this sort of thing, you'd think Robert Novak would be about the last choice. So I certainly didn't take his word for it.
