New Attorney General
(2008-05-28)
(WOUB) - Governor Strickland has tapped the dean of
the Ohio State University law school to serve as interim attorney general after a sexual harassment scandal forced out the previous attorney general.

Strickland says Nancy Hardin Rogers will lead the office for about six months but that she has no plans to run in the November election.

Rogers says she hopes to restore values to the office.

The Democratic Party must still select a candidate to run for the remaining two years left in the term of former Attorney General Marc Dann.

Dann resigned earlier this month after leading an office that was rocked by sexual harassment complaints, marks of
unprofessionalism and his own affair with a subordinate.

The resignation has given republicans an opening for the
statewide seat.
