    Thanks Knoxcat for your correction to my response in my comment. However, there are no term limits for Senators. To be more to the point, basically, all any Attorney General does is to argue against the common citizen in favor of the state. This was not the original role of the A.G.. and our state public defenders’ office is not doing their job to the best interests of the citizens of our state. I am still trying to hold on to the belief that our Constitutional rights have not vanished from the face of the earth, and I’m happy to finally see a Democrate in the Ohio Supreme Court.

    One correction, John. It does say in the article he is a former senator. He had to leave because of term limits I believe. Anyway he was replaced by Sherrod Brown. If you want to know why he wants to be AG you should read his campaign positions, which this story does not go into in great detail. It does seem to state he does have concerns with the state of law enforcement in the state, especially the BCI’s lack of whatever it takes to do a faster job of what it does.

    Why would a U.S. Senator want to become the Ohio Attorney General? It simply does’nt make any sense. Does Mike DeWine believe that he is useless in the Senate? I get sick and tired of these people refusing to take a job in the public sector, and instead, want to play political musicial chairs in trying to somehow advance their own political agenda. Even though Ohio Attorney General Cordray won his case opposing me in the 6th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals I still respect the man. I think Cordray is an honorable man, even though I’m a registered Republican. I’ve had enough of Mike DeWine, he should get off the public dole and start working in the real world that all of us have to put-up with.

    I have always embraced the concept of the laws and how they are applied in a selective manner. If one were to scanned through the pages of the Ohio Revised Code, one would be amazed that they weren’t continually harassed while walking in public.
