Toledo Mayor Jack Ford will help chair DNC rules committee

Given how little Mayor Ford seems to care about the rule of law in Toledo, we're forced to wonder just what sort of advocate he'll be for following the rules at the DNC. Then again, maybe he'll fit right in...

Toledo Mayor Jack Ford has been named vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee's rules committee for the party's convention this summer in Boston.

He was nominated for the post by national Chairman Terry McAuliffe, and was approved by the DNC executive committee. He will be one of the leaders responsible for procedural matters at the convention. He joins Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm on the committee. She was named one of the co-chairmen of the committee yesterday.

"This is a great honor," Mayor Ford said.

He has been a delegate to the last three Democratic conventions, and he had a speaking part at the 2000 meeting in Los Angeles.
