WARREN — The editorial board of the Tribune Chronicle announced Friday that it will call for Marc Dann’s resignation in an editorial to appear on its Web site today and in its Saturday print edition.
In October of 2006, the Tribune placed its support behind Marc Dann over Betty Montgomery in the race for Attorney General of Ohio. The newspaper’s editorial board said it believed that Dann’s tenacity made him the better candidate.
However, in light of announcements made during two press conferences today and the events that have transpired over the past month, the Tribune announced that it now apologizes for that endorsement.
Dann admitted an affair with a fellow employee. He publicly apologized to his wife and children.
Earlier today, Anthony Gutierrez was fired for violating the office’s sexual harassment policy, and Communications Chief Leo Jennings was fired for trying to get an office employee to lie under oath. Policy director Edgar Simpson was forced to resign because Simpson did not report inappropriate behavior in the office.
