Ohio AG: Clear death penalty roadblocks or get rid of it

Ohio AG: Clear death penalty roadblocks or get rid of it

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost last week used an annual report to draw attention to the fact that 140 people are languishing on death row because Ohio’s death penalty machinery “has grown increasingly time consuming, costly and lethargic.”Yost, a former prosecutor, might be expected to call for ways to speed up executions. But in an interview Monday, he said he’s not doing that. “I’m saying that (the system is) broken,” he said. “Anytime that you have a law that is not fairly and equally enforced — and promptly enforced — it demeans all law and breeds disrespect for law.”Ohio has...

DeWine aide’s organization was linked to now-guilty dark money group

DeWine aide’s organization was linked to now-guilty dark money group

Dan McCarthy, a top aide to Gov. Mike DeWine, hasn’t explained what he thought the point was of the millions funneling through a dark money group he founded and into another at the heart of a huge corruption scandal that has rocked Ohio. He did say, however, that he had no reason to believe it was anything improper.But the fact that the other dark money group has now pleaded guilty to its role in the corrupt scheme raises questions about what McCarthy did believe the purpose was, if not to conceal the fact that an Ohio utility was financing a scheme to make ratepayers bail out two nuclear...

Mike Dewine and health officials on Thursday said the increase has put the state in a race against more-contagious variants that evolve from the “mutant swarm” that thrives so long as the virus has plenty of hosts to infect.
