Democrat running for Ohio Governor had no driver's license for a decade

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Democrat running for Ohio governor went without a permanent driver's license for more than 10 years.

A campaign spokeswoman says Cuyahoga County executive Ed FitzGerald's license expired in 2002, and he didn't get a new permanent one until November 2012.

Spokeswoman Lauren Hitt says FitzGerald had scheduled his license renewal several times, but things kept coming up. She said the candidate recognizes it's not an acceptable excuse, and he takes full responsibility.

Ohio records show FitzGerald had temporary permits starting in 2008, but he lacked one for more than a year until he got a license.

FitzGerald's driving record has drawn scrutiny because of a 2012 incident in which police found him in his car with a woman at 4:30 a.m. at an industrial park in suburban Cleveland.
