GOP fires back on Driehaus-Dann $
Republicans have renewed their call for Democrat Steve Driehaus to return money raised at a fundraiser hosted by tainted Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann.

Driehaus told The Enquirer earlier this week that he had the fundraiser, not Dann, and that Dann was just an invited guest. And on top of that, Dann didn't even end up attending the event, he said.
But Ohio Republican Party spokesman John McClelland says this advertisement about the event (above) seems to say otherwise.
"Steve Driehaus clearly listed Marc Dann as the host for his event and used Dann's name to raise money from Cincinnati attorneys," he wrote in an e-mail. "Clearly, the influence of the attorney general's office played a role in the cash he raised and is therefore tainted."
Driehaus is running to unseat Republican Rep. Steve Chabot in Ohio's 1st Congressional District.
