Dayton Daily News statehouse reporter Laura Bischoff dashes that portrait with an item she posted on her blog Tuesday:
(Tomi) Dorris was promoted to lead the peace officers training academy while she was dating Edgar Simpson, Dann’s then chief of staff. The OPOTA Commission had actually recommended hiring someone else but Dann intervened to get Dorris hired.
According to Ms. Bischoff's post, the job paid $105,000 a year. I guess it pays to have a boyfriend in high places.
