Dann's mistake: Too many yes-men

Originally Published: 05:18 p.m., May 2, 2008 and  Updated 05:18 p.m., May 2, 2008

YOUNGSTOWN — David Betras, a longtime friend and former law partner of Attorney General Marc Dann, said his pal’s biggest mistake was surrounding himself with yes-men.

“He didn’t have a person telling him, ‘Don’t do this,’” said Betras, who ran Dann’s attorney general campaign from its start until shortly after his May 2006 primary victory. “He needed someone like me — I could control him — to tell him no.”

The results of an internal attorney general’s office investigation of sexual harassment complaints categorized the office as unprofessionally run with a great deal of cronyism when it comes to hires. The results of the investigation were released Friday.

Dann, a Liberty Democrat, also acknowledged an extra-marital affair with a woman in his office. He did not name her.

Sounds like another weak-ass response to another jerk who got elected to a very high office.
These politicians are the poster people for stupidity. They have no cognizant conception of right and wrong and it trickles down to the society we live in.

I always wondered what became of the Delta fraternity when they were kicked out of college after being on double secret probation. Now we know.
