Cleveland Plain Dealer
The columnist, who is married to U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, writes in a note to colleagues that “in recent weeks, it has become painfully clear that my independence, professionally and personally, is possible only if I’m no longer writing for the newspaper that covers my husband’s senate race on a daily basis,” so “it’s time for me to move on.” She apologized earlier this month for “crashing” a Tea Party event and failing to mention that her husband’s opponent was in attendance and that she had videotaped him. Schultz, who has been at the Plain Dealer for 18 years, writes in her farewell piece:

I leave The Plain Dealer with gratitude, and plenty to do. I’m working on my next book, and will continue to write essays for Parade magazine. I’m still a columnist with Creators Syndicate, and I’ll continue to focus on issues of social and economic justice. I’m weighing other options, and look forward to what comes next.
