Cuyahoga County embarrassment getting noticed by national pundits…

NRO’s Jim Geraghty took note of the Democrat’s ethical mess in Cleveland:

The Cleveland Plain-Dealer notices: “On Monday, county Commissioners Tim Hagan and Peter Lawson Jones, county Treasurer Jim Rokakis and Lakewood Mayor Ed FitzGerald all publicly asked county Auditor Frank Russo to resign. Advice so good should be repeated as often as necessary by the state’s top Democratic officeholders. So far, however, Gov. Ted Strickland and the Cleveland area’s Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher and Sen. Sherrod Brown have stayed silent.”

Why, it’s almost as if they put party loyalty ahead of ethics and the law. Lee Fisher, by the way, wants to be Ohio’s next senator, touting the fact that when he was the state’s attorney general, “took seriously my solemn responsibility to protect Ohioans as their chief law enforcement officer.” I guess he got over that.

Good points.

Well, Ted and Lee? We’re waiting.
