Fisher's staying where he is, Strickland says

Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland said during his Cincinnati visit today he hasn't given any thought to possible appointees for Attorney General, should a vacancy exist at some point.

But Strickland did rule out Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher, who's been mentioned as a possible replacement for current AG Marc Dann. Dann's office is ensnared in a scandal surrounding sexual harassment allegations against some of his top staffers.

Fisher served as AG from from 1991 to 1995, but today is director of the Department of Development. Dann has said he won't resign, but Strickland would get to appoint a successor if he ever did leave.

"Listen, I want to tell you my Lieutenant Governor is so good right where he is, I can't think of him as going anywhere else," Strickland said.

Strickland didn't respond to speculation that former Cincinnati Mayor Charlie Luken would be an option also.

Former Cincinnati Mayor Charlie Luken was unable to respond to the speculation due to his sobriety status.

Former Mayor Charlie "my boy" Luken is the main reason the City now sucks compared to what a great city it was before he and his liberal friends lost control of the sub-humans in town and tied the police departments hands. This has continued with Mallory and his liberal gang. We don't need Luken to help Strickland screw up the state, he will do that all by himself.

Every since Dann brought down the wRong wingnut whacko, convicted 'taft', they have been gunning for him !

No wonder he insists that his driver pack insurance !

Dann isn't going anywhere, the people elected him !

Did the convicted 'Taft' resign ?

Dann is gaining everyone's respect by not responding to the elephant dung rhetoric !

Too bad the 'fishwRap' didn't give the 'culture of corruption' child labor racket equal coverage !

PATHETIC 'family values'

Ted Strickland didn't choose the Attorney General. The AG ran on his own and he's going to have to clean up his own mess.

You hang in there Ted. You have some serious work to do these next few years.

Never thought I'd say this, but Bold Endeavors is 100% dead on. Dann should not resign. Dann should stay in office. He should resist all calls from the Gang Of Pedophiles to resign until Diaper Dave Vitter and Foot-Tappin Larry Craig step down.

I was utterly disgusted by the corruption of the Republican Party over the last decade in Ohio and Hamilton County and gladly voted for Dann.

But, I am deeply disappointed - in fact, appaulled, by - if nothing else - his failure to oversee his staff, his selection of staff, and his lack of leadership and expectations.

What was once so promising, appears a bitter disappointment. Dann needs to fire anyone and everyone involved in any offensive conduct (whether illegal or not)regardless of the outcome of complaints. And attempt to resurrect his reputation.

Undoubtably, the Republicans did the same thing - just with their ties on and more secretive - but there's something to say about at least knowing what kind of behavior to conceal.

Great give the Dann's job to another drunken lawyer with a frat boy mentality. Is Charlie even sober enough to stand up?

It would be nice to have someone from our part of the State holding one of these offices. Luken, Portman, Portune...they all would help our area and give us a voice.
