Ohio GOP wants Butler Co.'s Rogers to quit

GOP release tonight:

Ohio Republican Party Demands Resignation of Butler County Auditor
Rogers Admits Guilt to Federal Charges

Columbus - Ohio Republican Party Deputy Chairman Kevin DeWine today released the following statement:

"The Ohio Republican Party has a no tolerance policy for any public official found guilty of corruption or criminal behavior. Kay Rogers must resign immediately."

From Enquirer reporters online and in Wednesday's paper:

Pressure on Rogers to resign continues to mount.

County commissioners called on her to quit shortly after the announcement was made Monday. On Tuesday, Butler County Prosecutor Robin Piper said he intends to send a letter today (Wednesday) urging her to step down.

“It doesn’t aid her current predicament to try to hang on,” Piper said. “It’s in everybody’s best interest for her to just go ahead and resign and prevent further disruption.”

As she awaits sentencing, Rogers is forbidden from leaving the federal court’s jurisdiction without prior written permission. That area includes a 52-county region of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

Piper’s office is still studying whether Rogers can legally keep her post.

How many more examples does the voting public need that the Republican Party is full of criminals who clearly are looking out for themselves and could care less about the voters.

Democrats are the real criminals.

Check out the "Dollar Bill" Jefferson [Democrat] case down in New Orleans. Ol' Dollar Bill kept $100,000 in bribes in his freezer.
