Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Connie Schultz has resigned from The Plain Dealer, saying her personal and professional independence was at stake if she remained at the newspaper. She had written a column for the daily paper for eighteen years.
Schultz is married to United States Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), who is seeking reelection next year.
Conservatives often attacked Schultz, claiming she used her column to support her husband’s politics, an accusation she refuted.
