Whoomp, There It Is: Strickland, 'Fern et al Tell Dann to Go [UPDATED]

Posted just before 11:00 on the Dispatch:

    Dann will be sent a strongly worded letter that should reach him no later than 11:30 a.m. that he must, in the best interest of his office and the party, step down.

    The letter comes after multiple conversations took place over the past two days among Gov. Ted Strickland, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, Treasurer Richard Cordray, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher and the two Democratic legislative leaders, Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Columbus, and Sen. Ray Miller, D-Columbus. Ohio Democratic Chairman Chris Redfern's name also is on the letter.
According to the Dispatch, Dann was asked if he planned to resign and he replied:

UPDATE: An ONN breaking story interview with Alan Johnson of the Dispatch the anchor reading from the letter says that the Dems promise to look into impeachment if Dann doesn't step down.

Drip, drip, drip.

Dann has said that he feels he can still adequately perform the AG duties.

When he's not wanted?

Time for Dann to do the right thing. Resign. Now.
