Kenneth Blackwell strikes again

Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, already under scrutiny for allegedly mishandling the presidential vote, sent a fundraising letter for his 2006 gubernatorial campaign asking for illegal contributions.

A pledge card accompanying the letter said, "corporate & personal checks are welcome." The only problem is, corporate donations are illegal in Ohio.

It wasn't Blackwell's fault, of course. He said the request was an oversight, and his campaign's fundraising coordinator, Jeff Ledbetter, blamed the printer.

How does Blackwell plan to remedy the situation? His spokesman, Carlo LoParo, said that any corporate donations they receive will be returned.

That's a relief. It's good to know Blackwell is a man of integrity.
