Only one state has AG office in DC - Ohio

WASHINGTON -- With Marc Dann's colorful personnel problems keeping Ohioans in shock or stitches, few have noticed his pioneering ways. The Ohio attorney general has installed a former campaign aide as his man in Washington, D.C.

Craig Mehall has a unique job as the nation's only full-time Washington liaison to a state attorney general, according to a Plain Dealer query of the 49 other state attorneys general. Mehall, 40, justifies his unusual $98,000-a-year job, as does Dann, as a way to tap into Washington cash and congressional pork that might not come Ohio's way otherwise.

WTF??????????????

I thought theese candidates all want to eliminate "Washington cash and congressional pork"?????

Why is it that no other state has an AG rep. in DC???
Because they are brighter than this currant administration, and have more respect for the taxpayers money!!!!!

ANOTHER REASON TO GET RID OF THIS MARK DANN CLOWN IN SHORT ORDER!!!!

The news media in Ohio should be praising Marc Dann from the rafter for bringing more Federal money home for Ohio. Our Repug Congresscritters have been too busy enriching themselves, toadying up to Mr. 19% Himself, or doing who knows what with their interns and pages. Instead, you're taking the bait from the Gang Of Perverts and going on this wild-goose chase into Marc Dann's personal life. It's gonna be just like Bill Clinton: angry Repugnicants convince a willing media to ransack a Democrat's personal life from top to bottom, and millions of taxpayer dollars are spent to come away with NOTHING. NOT ONE THING. Bill Clinton didn't do anything wrong and neither has Marc Dann.

You pathetic media types have no life and have to use yours to nitpick others and get your jollies from maybe some almost-incriminating e-mails.

Oh, by the way, what's the workplace culture like in YOUR offices?

Repugs in glass houses shouldn't throw stones... and buy some shades next time Littly Izzy Intern comes to visit. ;)

Malia Rulon should've been onto this. Instead, we get umpteen stories on Portman speculation.

Typical wRong wingnut whackos spewing the elephant dung propaganda, PERIOD !

"Mehall and Dann say they have already been successful, citing a $5.8 million competitive Justice Department grant awarded in October to Cleveland and other northern Ohio communities to fight violent crime. The attorney general office's share was $2.9 million.

Dann's office called the overall Ohio grant the biggest of its kind in the country, and Mehall said he helped make that possible by setting up meetings and making calls so Ohio would know just how to structure its request.

"The proof 's in the success that he's had so far, and I think the success we'll see in the future," Dann said. "If Mehall is not creating value at least equal to his salary," Dann said, " then we won't renew his contract. But so far he's created much more than that."

Leave it to the wRong wingnut whackos to oppose money for law enforcement so they can continue their 'culture of corruption' !

PATHETIC 'HypocRites' !

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE DEMOCRAT 2008 !

You don't think Bill Clinton did anything wrong in the Oval Office? You don't think going on National television and pointing his finger and saying, "I did not have sex with that woman Monica Lewinsky " was wrong? What kind of moral values do you have? You're sick.

3:56, Bill Clinton didn't break any laws and neither has Marc Dann.

I guess you think it's OK to start illegal wars and to send millions of jobs overseas, deny healthcare to children, etc.

What kind of moral values are those? You're the sick one.

What a waste when Ohio is fighting budget problems. Use the $100k to pay down the debt.
