Congressional colleagues honor Gillmor

Columbus, OH – At a memorial service in the Ohio statehouse today (Tuesday), congressman Paul Gillmor was praised as a dedicated honest public official. Gillmor died last Wednesday in Washington after falling down the stairs in his apartment. Dozens of Gillmor's colleagues in Congress flew to Columbus for the memorial service, and some of Ohio's top government leaders recalled him as a politician and as a man. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen files this report.
