WHEREAS, Attorney General Marc Dann's actions have irreparably harmed his ability to effectively serve the people of our great state; and,
WHEREAS, The work of the Office of the Attorney General matters more, and is far more important, than any one single individual. In many, many cases it is all that stands between the people and the powerful; and,
WHEREAS, Our Democratic statewide leaders have unanimously called for Dann's resignation, and have made it clear that if he chooses not to resign, Democratic members of the Ohio House of Representatives would move to seek his impeachment; and,
WHEREAS, The Ohio Democratic Women's Caucus joins the call for Dann's resignation because it believes that women in the workplace need to be respected, valued, and free from intimidation.
THEREFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED, The Ohio Democratic Party no longer recognizes Marc Dann as an endorsed Democratic Statewide officeholder; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT, Marc Dann will no longer be considered an ex-officio member of the Ohio Democratic Party Executive Committee and thus no longer entitled to the full rights and privileges of such membership; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT, Marc Dann is removed as an ex-officio delegate to the 2008 Democratic State Party Convention; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT, The Executive Committee of the Ohio Democratic Party calls on Marc Dann to immediately resign his position as Attorney General of the State of Ohio, and puts itself in support of the letter signed by the statewide Democratic officials dated May 4, 2008.
