Cuyahoga County Executive and Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Ed FitzGerald explains why he was in a car with a woman who wasn’t his wife early one morning in 2012 — she was part of a delegation of visitors from Ireland visiting the city, and she and FitzGerald were separated from another vehicle heading back to a hotel. FitzGerald said nothing improper occurred, and no citation was issued by an officer who checked the vehicle that morning. He also blasted Ohio Republicans and Gov. John Kasich for digging for dirt about him and his family. Jay McDonald, head of the Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio, also offered comments.
