Sunday May 4, 2008

Attorney General Marc Dann

State of Ohio

Rhodes State Office Tower

30 East Broad Street

Columbus, OH 43215

Dear Attorney General Dann,

We write to you tonight to ask that you resign your position as Attorney General of the State ofOhio.

We believe that your actions have irreparably harmed your ability to effectively serve the people of our great state.

The work of the Office of the Attorney General matters more, and is far more important, than any one person. In many, many cases it is all that stands between the people and the powerful. Sadly, we no longer have even the most remote hope that you can continue to effectively serve as Attorney General and that is why we are asking for your resignation.

We also want to make you aware that if you do not choose to resign, Democratic members of the Ohio House of Representatives will immediately introduce a resolution seeking your impeachment. We sincerely hope that this action will not be necessary and that you will act in the best interest of the people of Ohio by tendering your resignation Monday morning.


Ted Strickland Sherrod Brown

Governor U.S. Senator

Lee Fisher Jennifer Brunner

Lt. Governor Secretary of State

Richard Cordray Ray Miller

Treasurer Senate Minority Leader

Joyce Beatty Chris Redfern
