THE TOLL

Just after I mentioned here that the coin scandal is a problem for the Republican gubenatorial hopefuls, the Toledo Blade adds to their dozens of stories on the issue with a detailed article about how it affects the individual candidates. It concludes with something I would love to see:
David Mark, the editor-in-chief of Washington-based Campaigns & Elections Magazine, said if voters have lost trust in Republican candidates because of the coin scandal, it will create serious obstacles for whoever gains the GOP nomination for governor.

"It's not really a hint of corruption, it appears to be outright evidence of corruption for the controlling party," he said. "There's really nobody else to blame when you're in charge."

Except, perhaps, political opponents in the primary.

"It's almost mutually assured destruction," he said. "As soon as one levels a charge at the others, there's plenty of fodder they can use against each other."


The Blade's handling of the coin scandal may be the best investigative series I've read in a newspaper since the Chicago Tribune's death penalty series.
