Ohio House files impeachment charges against Dann
Marc Dann, Ohio Attorney General
(WOUB) - Ohio House Democrats have filed articles
of impeachment against scandal-scarred Attorney General Marc Dann, seeking the fellow Democrat's removal for allegations including malfeasance in office.

The Democrats' resolution filed Tuesday outlines nine counts of why Dann should be impeached, including allegations of obstructing an investigation, making misleading statements under oath and
general misconduct.

The impeachment articles must get Republican support in order to send the charges to the Senate for a trial.

Democrats say they drafted the articles based on sworn testimony from an internal investigation into sexual harassment complaints against an aide in Dann's office, as well as other statements.

ann has refused requests from both parties to resign after admitting an extramarital affair earlier this month.
