For the first time in Ohio history, the Ohio Supreme Court will decide whether to suspend the law license of the person who had served as Attorney General, the state’s top lawyer.

“It is now clear that the last step I must take to fix these problems is to resign as Attorney General, effective immediately.”

Those were the words Marc Dann used when he stepped down from his A.G. office in 2008.

But Marc Dann’s resignation during a sexual harassment scandal wasn’t the last step.

Since the Democrat from Youngstown left office, he’s faced several probes and hearings on what he and his staffers did when he was AG. But perhaps the biggest remains: arguments before the Ohio Supreme Court on whether Dann’s law license should be suspended for six months.

The Office of Disciplinary Council has twice suggested a stayed penalty, but the Disciplinary Board has recommended a six-month suspension based on Dann’s two misdemeanor ethics convictions: improperly paying state employees from campaign funds, and filing inaccurate financial disclosure statements while in office.

Dann counters by saying the suspension goes too far, especially when compared to the reprimand issued to Republican Gov. Bob Taft, who was convicted of ethics violations while still in office.

But the disciplinary council notes Dann committed these acts while serving as Ohio’s chief attorney, and says the negative attention Dann brought to the AG’s office warrants an actual suspension.

Dann is practicing law in the Cleveland area and would not be able to work as an attorney if his license is suspended, but he could if the suspension is stayed.

    Marc Dann, now fights, to regain his law license. People take a good look, at this character, and consider, reasons he lost it in the first place.

    The Public only is aware, of what has surfaced, not all he is responsibile and involved with.

    Dann, tookhis stance, waved his fist, and demanded, someone to “Make him” resign, or remove himself from Ohio Attorney General, position. he wanted to defend, some self belief, he has a right, to abuse people, intimidate, make multiples of paychecks, Help himself, to any financial sources, that is there to uphold and run this office, that the taxpayers, pay for.

    So in essence, he has no control over himself, placing the demands, on others to control his actions. He blames to much partying, he hires the wrong people.

    Uses heroin as a provision, has sex with a minor male, and with male and female employees, cost the tax payers a ton of money for investigations, court cases.

    Richard Cordray, personally said to me, he was unable to help me, because he had to much of a mess to clean up after Dann, before this Office could resume any function to operate, for what it was purposed for.

    Now General Motors,Social Security, Internal Revenue, must stop from routine work, and deal with the loss, the deception and the damages caused by this individual and his as he calls it ‘personalities” He evidently does not know, where he is and what he is doing.

    The Only business he would get, is his partners in crime. who else would want to give him a “Chance”
