What does it take for Strickland to fire you? A lot

As you now have already heard, Jones-Kelly was put on administrative leave and so far is not going to be fired (yet).

Here is what it takes to only get put on unpaid administrative leave:
1. Inappropriately looking up information on a citizen.
2. Lying about the reasons you are doing so to the media and the public.
3. Forcing a subordinate to write a letter to cover for you.
4. Using state resources on political campaigns.

You would think someone with that record would be fired with Strickland's pledge to clean up government, but I guess not because he "values her contributions." Bob Taft valued Tom Noe's contributions to his community and he initially treated him with kid gloves, so where is the difference? Expect this to be an issue for Strickland for the next 1.5 years and it should be, especially if she were to remain. Regardless of her "contributions" what she continually did was wrong-it was not an accident-she should be fired as well as anyone else who looked up information on a citizen.

Actually Chris it wouldn't even take this much if it were someone who wasn't a Democrat. As you realize a Democrat only has the best intentions at heart when breaking the law so the punishment shouldn't be as harsh.
Here's to the crazy ones, the rebels, the troublemakers, the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

Strickland finally moved against then-AttyGen Marc Dann. I'm hoping that Strickland moves at least as speedily here, but then, ousting Dann took a while too, didn't it?

Be it Huckabee or Strickland ......you cannot always trust a preacher.

Everyone envolved must be fired..........
