Today marks the next step in the unraveling of the Congressman that used to be Jean Schmidt.
Jean Schmidt has dropped the $6.8 defamation million lawsuit that she initiated against one-time opponent David Krikorian in Clermont County Common Pleas Court, offering as an explanation only "its time to move on."
The lawsuit and several other legal actions against Krikorian were funded, illegally, by the Turkish Coalition of America to the tune of $500,000. Schmidt dodged the media inquiries and prosecution by the House Ethics Committee by claiming ignorance of what those around her were doing.
The media in Cincinnati, especially the editorial pages, showed what lapdogs they are by refusing to cover and condemn her illegal behavior, or at least her claimed ignorance.
City Beat has the best coverage of today's developments, here. We just wonder why they refused to tell this story while it was happening. The Enquirer's is here.
