So far, during the months of investigation into alleged voter fraud in the 2012 election, the two Republicans and two Democrats on the Hamilton County Board of Elections have, for the most part, played nice, with partisan bickering down to a minimum.
That could change very quickly Wednesday morning, when the board of elections next meets.
That’s when the board will take up the issue of whether to refer more cases of alleged “voter anomalies” – that is the polite word they have been using for cases of alleged voter fraud – to the Hamilton County prosecutor.
Democrat David Mann - a former Cincinnati mayor and congressman whose name hasn't been on the ballot since 1994 - is seriously considering a political comeback this year as a candidate for Cincinnati City Council.
"I've described myself as a recovering politician all these years; and maybe I am not,'' said Mann, with a laugh.
The 73-year-old lawyer told WVXU Wednesday that he still has "a passion for public service, which I think is a great privilege. And I think I have something to offer."
Mann said he will make a final decision "very soon."
