From The Blade:
Gov. Bob Taft, who has been an attorney in Ohio since 1976, would receive a public reprimand for his conviction last year on misdemeanor ethics violations, under an agreement reached between the governor's private attorney and the Ohio Supreme Court's disciplinary counsel.
The pact, referred to as a "consent to discipline" and similar to a plea agreement, must gain approval of the Supreme Court's Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline and the seven member high court.
"I admit the violation… as outlined in this agreement," Mr. Taft wrote in an affidavit attached to the six-page agreement that The Blade obtained yesterday.
