COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's attorney general has resigned amid
the scandal of a sexual harassment investigation in his office and
his extramarital affair.
Marc Dann has been under pressure of possible impeachment and
announced he was stepping down on Wednesday.
The 46-year-old Democrat at first refused to resign, despite
demands by Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland and others within his
Dann admitted May 2 to an extramarital affair with an employee
that he said contributed to an atmosphere leading to sexual
harassment claims against a top aide. Three aides were forced out
in the harassment investigation, which showed managers encouraged a
casual work environment with frequent profanity and inappropriate
interactions with subordinates.
