Dimora equates DOJ with GOP

Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora wants a probe of the federal investigators going after him.

Actually, the Department of Justice is going after people in a trail leading up to such as Dimora, who just stepped down as full-time county Democratic Party chief to become the interim chief.

During a press conference Monday, Democrat Dimora said an on-going feds’ investigation of the county’s Democrat leaders began under the administration of Republican President Bush.

Dimora wants Democrat Barack Obama’s DOJ to investigate the DOJ. Or something.

Hmm. Democrat Gov. Ted Strickland himself asked Dimora to step down as party chair. But Strickland might be pleased by Dimora’s lively, lengthy and humorous press conference.

Isn’t Strickland himself coming under some heavy fire in Cleveland in opinions that please Republicans?
