Death Blow for Mike DeWine?

Ouch! I can already hear myself say it. Because I know there will be a TV ad about this for sure. And it will hurt. Will it be the death blow?

At least two dozen federal judges appointed by President Bush since 2001 made political contributions to key Republicans or to the president himself while under consideration for their judgeships, government records show.

Republicans who received money from judges en route to the bench include Sens. Arlen Specter and Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, Sens. George Voinovich and Mike DeWine of Ohio...

I remember someone saying that in Washington, it’s not enough to avoid impropriety; one must avoid even the appearance of impropriety. At the very least, this appears bad. Very, very bad.
