AG admits affair but won't leave
(WOUB) - Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann says he
had an affair with an employee and that he won't resign in the wake
of scandal over sexual harassment allegations against an aide.

Dann's disclosure came at a news conference shortly after
internal investigators announced that three aides were forced out
of their jobs in the scandal.

Dann, who is married, would not identify the employee he had a
consensual affair with.

Investigators say Dann's scheduler, 28-year-old Jessica Utovich,
also resigned voluntarily. She and Dann had a close relationship in
which they often used profanity, nicknames and teasing when
e-mailing each other. No reason is being given for her resignation.

Dann says he is disappointed in himself and took responsibility
for the problems in his office.
