Was it Victoria's Secret?

By Bertram de Souza (Contact)

Published April 8, 2008

In detailing the sexual harassment allegations made by two female employees of the Ohio Attorney General's Office against Anthony Gutierrez of Liberty, a political appointee of Attorney General Marc Dann's earning $87,000 a year, The Columbus Dispatch shed light on a unique way Dann conducts official business.

Based on the written complaint filed by one of the women, Cindy Stankoski, 26, The Dispatch reported that less than three weeks after she was hired, Gutierrez, a neighbor of Dann's in Liberty, pressed her to have a drink with him after work. The newspaper reported that Gutierrez took Stankoski to two downtown bars and to a steakhouse. While there, Gutierrez received a call from Dann urging both of them to come to the condo he was sharing at the time with Gutierrez and Leo Jennings III, the AG's communications chief.

The newspaper reported that when they got to the condo, Dann's scheduler, Jessica Utovich, was there. According to Stankoski's complaint, Utovich "walked in w. pj's and laptop" and lay down on the floor to work on her computer.

Here's how Jennings, another Valley resident, explained Utovich's presence in the condo: He told the newspaper that staffers, including Utovich, occasionally visited the condo, but only for work-related purposes: "She was there to deliver schedules."

Thus the question: Were the pajamas she was wearing from Victoria's Secret? If they were, it would explain a lot, given that the world-famous lingerie chain has a line of lounge wear, such as pajamas, that are popular with women who take their work home.

The other question that Utovich's presence in the condo triggers is this: Was Dann dressed in a smoking jacket (a la Hef —Hugh Hefner)?

Why is it that so many of our "community leaders" don't understand that professionalism does not include asking young women working for them to have sex? Within the past few months we had to listen to the sordid accusations involving Joe McRae's behavior and now we get to hear how the state's work is being done at the AG's office.

Since when does professional behavior include doing business at a bachelor pad? Do these people not have access to email or fax machines? Why is it necessary for a young female scheduler to hand deliver a document to the AG after hours. Hand-delivering papers to a boss at his bachelor pad is a lot different than delivering them to the family home with the wife, kids, and family dog present.

Shame on Marc Dann for allowing his office staff to act in such an unprofessional manner. I voted for him and was happy to have someone from this area in that office. Again, the Mahoning Valley is disappointed by one of our own who was given the opportunity to accomplish great things for us and blew it.

Dann better clean up his AG's office because he'll have an Attorney embarrassing his office here very soon.

Put up or shut up Marc Dann. If you won't put up, expect to lose your job in the coming years!

True Valleyred, I feel their is more than is comming out right now. I am guessing here, But I bet something comes out involving Dann. It would be sad, those are my feelings, Hope they are wrong. Also, Look at the people he has given jobs to.
