Murray, Enderle invite Dann to leave

The two men running for the Ohio House position that represents Erie and Ottawa counties have joined the call for Attorney General Marc Dann to step down.

Dann is mired in a sex scandal at his office, and every top Democrat in the state, including Gov. Ted Srickland and party chairman Chris Redfern, has asked Dann to quit.

Redfern, D-Catawba Island, is leaving office as state representative at the end of the year because of term limits, and Republican Ed Enderle, a Huron Township trustee and farmer, and Democrat Dennis Murray Jr., a Sandusky attorney and city commissioner, are vying to replace him.

On this issue, "I stand behind the governor," Enderle said. People in office "ought to meet a higher standard," and Ohio needs an attorney general who can take care of business without distractions, Enderle said.

"I'd say there isn't any chance at all Mark Dann will remain in office," Murray said. "He is going to have to resign."

Dann has not been the kind of effective attorney general many Democrats were hoping for, Murray said.

Maybe Gov. Ted Strickland and Ohio Democratic whip Chris Redfern - Maybe the Ohio Democrats Party should recall you,as a whole being the Dem. Party's Nominee to replace 80th Chris Redfern 80th State House District. ( Being Such A Time As This Is )

Yes, I'm sure if the Governor and the head of the Ohio Democratic Party couldn't convince Dann to quit...a little push from two local yocales from Erie County was just the straw to break the camel's back.

Murray better watch it. Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

Thought the Gov. gave him a deadline of midnight this past Monday to resign? Maybe Gov. should be as adamant on firing him as he was on firing the OSHP officers. Dann's actions are just as despicable!

If Dann refuses to resign, top Dems and Republicans alike will vote to impeach. Dann's done.

Im sure Dennis Murray is a good man, at least from what I know of him, but I think that since he is already having fund raisers and campaigning for a seat in the Ohio House and that hes putting time into that, along with his busy lawyer schdeule, how can he give 110% to the city of Sandusky as our Mayor? Especially the way things are going at this time. Dennis you need to resign your position as our Mayor and move onto winning your House seat, but you cannot be devoting your time to the Senate and full time job and also run our city.
