COLUMBUS, Ohio – Democratic Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland has tapped the dean of the Ohio State University law school to serve temporarily as attorney general after a sexual harassment scandal forced out the previous attorney general.
Strickland says Nancy Rogers will lead the office for about six months but has no plans to run in the November election.
Strickland's announcement means he must still select a candidate to run for the remaining two years left in the term of former Democratic Attorney General Marc Dann.
Dann resigned after leading an office that was rocked by sexual harassment complaints, marks of unprofessionalism and his own affair with a subordinate.
