The story of the (almost) guilty governor

Nolo contendere was the plea entered today by Ohio Governor Bob Taft. Nolo contendere is Latin for I do not wish to contend but really means I did it but guilty sounds real bad. Taft is the first Ohio governor to be charged and convicted of a crime. Now, he needs to be the seventh Ohio governor to resign the office. The previous six to resign did so to take other jobs. Four became U.S. Senators (Tiffen, Brown, Lausche and Voinovich). One (Meigs) was named U.S. Postmaster General and another (Wood) was appointed to the U.S. Consulate in Chile. I don't think the future is quite so bright for Taft.

Bill, If Taft were even remotely competent no one would want him to resign over this minor infraction.
