Ohio Elections Commission delays hearing ex-AG, Dann


COLUMBUS, Ohio The Ohio Elections Commission has postponed Thursday's hearing on accusations that former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann misused campaign funds.

Commission executive director Philip Richter says the 7-member panel wants more time to review what he says are complex and serious allegations. Plus, he says the regulators wanted to hold off on the hearing until after changes on the panel, which has two members whose terms expire soon.

Richter says he expects the commission to wait until March 5 to focus on the complaints filed against Dann by the state inspector general and the secretary of state, Ohio's top elections official.

Dann resigned in scandal last May. He has denied allegations he improperly used campaign money for home repairs and family vacations.
