Here's the report from Gongwer News Service, which covers state government:
The House State Government & Elections Committee today recommended legislation authorizing an Inspector General’s investigation of Attorney General Marc Dann. The amendment, which cleared the panel on a split vote with most Democrats in opposition, provides a budget of $250,000 and includes an emergency clause. A vote in the full House is expected later today.
Separately, Democrats in the House prepared to introduce an articles of impeachment resolution (draft version) as an alternative to the inspector general’s probe.
“We have identified a pattern of misconduct that we believe rises to the level of impeachable offenses,” said Reps. Dan Dodd of Hebron, Jennifer Garrison of Marietta and Mark Okey of Carrollton, who were assigned to review the case on behalf of House Democrats. “We promised the people of Ohio to end a culture of corruption that existed in the past, and we are fulfilling that promise by cleaning our own house when events and circumstances warrant.”
The lawmakers said it is time for Mr. Dann to be held accountable for his actions, and the operations of his office. “We will not allow this pattern of misconduct to overshadow the important work being done on behalf of the people of Ohio. These Articles outline the case for us to move forward to address this situation and continue the work of promoting our state and protecting our constituents, undeterred by this distraction.”
