I am done with the Ohio Democratic Party

Because of the hypocritical actions against Marc Dann today by the Ohio Democratic Party despite the fact he has committed no crime whatsoever. It is clear they have joined in a morals witch hunt which I will have no part of.

I will immediatly have my email address removed from their mailing lists and will no longer contribute to the state party in any way whatsover.

I have called for Redfern's resignation before for such other unwise management of the party and I do so again. I will also not support Ted Strickland for reelection and will lobby vigourously with the Obama campaign to not seriously consider such a hypocrite for the Vice Presidential nomination.

Good for you, Joe. I agree 100% with this post and your post of yesterday.

Isn't this like the second time you've resigned the Ohio Democratic Party??

Oh and didn't you once write:
"I have posted about the need for real true moral leaders. I have also posted about how it is our responsiblity to find, support and get the word out about those leaders.

You're such a blowhard, willing to drop the party at the drop of a hat. Pretending that people didn't notice that you've done it time and time again over other nonsense. Then, supporting some candidates as moral leaders, but then criticizing other leaders when you don't agree with them for showing moral leadership.

So you think it was wrong for Strickland and Brown not to support impeaching Clinton? Fine, then shouldn't you be happy they're getting it right this time?

And if you can't see a difference between the two, it's because you haven't tried. Lying under oath in a civil trial that had nothing to with the President's duties is not the same thing as Marc Dann's actual official misdeeds.

Sounds like you weren't that dedicated to the party to begin with. I don't think anyone will notice your absence.

A witch hunt over someones private life has nothing to do with "moral leadership", It is involving oneselves in areas that have they have no business nor has anything to do with how one does their job or serves the people.

By moral leadership in my earlier quote, I mean't clearly things like honesty, and the lack of hypocracy in how one lives up to the commitments of the job they were elected to do.

I have yet to see anyone prove any official misdeeds. I do however look forward to an Inspector Generals investigation so that decisions can be made on actual facts rather then knee jerk assumptions.

I have often been annoyed with the Ohio Democratic Party and no actually I am not dedicated to it, I am however dedicated to my beliefs and good candidates who I support. They just happen usually to be Democrats.

The officials of the "party" and how it iss run in Ohio I do have great issues with.

I do agree with you I don't expect any of the party big wigs to miss me.

So, the fact that Dann created an environment where Dann's cronies could use state property and staff to run their own side businesses, where Dann's cronies could continually harass and abuse staff, where Dann's cronies could get drunk and crash state cars, and face no consequences whatsoever should not be a reason he has to step down?

Great logic there, Joe.

I believe the actual people who are guilty of misdeeds are no longer employed, that sounds like consequences to me
