From The New York Times, May 18, 2007:

As New York attorney general, Eliot Spitzer won national attention by becoming the new sheriff in finance, taking on Wall Street and mutual funds and the insurance industry.

With Mr. Spitzer now in the governor’s mansion, is there another state regulator trying to take up his badge? A strong candidate for the new Spitzer might be Marc Dann, the new attorney general of Ohio.

Well, sort of. Guess there’s more than one definition of “activist” attorney general.

Lots of back and forth today over Dann’s resignation, impeachment, hanging on, etc., the result of an ugly scandal involving lots of things, including an affair with a staffer, mismanagement and interfering with an investigation.
