Two former Dann aides facing criminal charges



Published: Tue, March 2, 2010 @ 4:54 p.m.

Two former high-level officials in the then-Attorney General Marc Dann administration face misdemeanor ethics charges for failing to disclose money they received from campaign funds related to their former boss.

Leo Jennings III of Poland, Dann’s communications director, and Edgar C. Simpson of The Plains, Ohio, his chief of policy and administration, were charged today in Franklin County Municipal Court by the Ohio Ethics Commission and the Franklin County prosecutor’s office.

Jennings, 54, and Simpson, 46, are to plead guilty to the charges when they appear in front of Judge William Politt at 10 a.m. Thursday, said Paul Nick, the ethics commission’s chief investigative attorney, who signed the complaints.

When asked if this ended the lengthy investigation into the scandal during Dann’s 17-month term as attorney general, Nick said, “No. the investigation is ongoing.”
