Report Accuses Marc Dann of Hiring "Dannettes"

Marc Dann was elected because of the GOP’s pay to play scandal, now he continues to pay for playing during his brief stint as Attorney General.

The Inspector General has come down hard on Marc Dann. Ohio’s government watchdog says former Attorney General Marc Dann ran an unprofessional office and misused campaign funds and state resources.

A report by Inspector General Tom Charles says Dann’s 17 months in office was marked by abusive and vulgar language and a failure by Dann and others to maintain professional boundaries.

The report says Dann hired a group of women nicknamed the “Dannettes,” who were so inappropriate in dress and conduct that they were given etiquette training. Dann resigned in May amid a sexual harassment scandal involving an aide.

The report also said Dann created a corporation that solicited more than $195,000 in unreported donations from business interests. All but about $8,000 was spent, including $12,000 that went to his
wife’s business, Zesty Dishes.
