Looks like Coingate is turning out to be as much about simple corruption as weird financial schemes using Ohio money. (I really wish it could be more weird financial schemes. I was looking forward to the exposé on the chinchilla farms.)

Governor Bob Taft has admitted he didn’t disclose some golf outings with the central figure in the Coingate scandal, Thomas Noe. While the possibility of free golf doesn’t sound like a big deal — even though it is a violation of the law — the bigger issue is that four top Ohio officials have already resigned because of accepting gifts such as free golf outings.

So, I’m sure we all expect Gov. Taft to do the logical thing and step down, right? 😉
