Now here is a little ditty from the Thursday August 30, 2007 Columbus Dispatch in an article by James Nash, about Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann and his investigation into "Tic Tac Fruit". Yes you read that right, "Tic Tac Fruit". Others are hoping that the theft of the 2004 election can take center stage in Ohio investigations. Tic Tac Fruit is a gambling machine, like pinball, but you need some skill and you can win money. There are concerns that the game can be rigged, like a voting machine. Is it a game of chance, or a game of skill? Shall we look at voting with those same questions? Well according to the current article, and one of several days ago, it seems to be a big threat to Ohioans. Storeowners don't sound so sure that we are to be scared. According to Talmadge Long, the owner of "Lucky You" a Jeffersonville parlor, he was unsure of his next move, as Marc Dann wants to shut down all these machines in Ohio. Talmadge said, " I'm just a businessman, I don't know what the hell they want me to do."

The quote from Marc Dann in a written statement is,

"We will fight this battle with every necessary resource".

From this article, and a past one I have learned that the Attorney Generals Office has sent out 700 certified letters on this issue, and has the police visiting game parlors. Heck, on Wednesday, August 29th investigators went to game parlors in Jeffersonville, Tiffin and Calcutta. Hour’s later Dann's office filed court motions seeking orders to close the businesses for allegedly violating the Consumer Sales Practices Act, which prohibits deceptive marketing.

Marc Dann has called on the public to help report gambling machines to his office through anew toll-free phone number, 1-877-AG4-OHIO (1-877-244-6446), or a new Web site, www.ag4ohio.gov .
