If you visit the website Miller has set up to promote the property tax repeal effort, you will see his name and picture prominently displayed, which is not at all appropriate for a supposed not-for-profit organization. There has been some speculation the 2004 losing GOP candidate for governor might take another crack at Gov. Mitch Daniels in next year's GOP primary. His full page-ad urges people to contact Gov. Daniels' office because he has not publicly declared his support for repealing the taxes, although the ad does note that Daniels is "open" to the idea. WXNT's Abdul Hakim Shabazz plans to interview Miller live on his radio show "Abdul in the Morning" tomorrow morning between 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. This will be Miller's first appearance on Abdul's show.

Miller Spends Big Bucks On Repeal Property Tax Effort
Advance America's Eric Miller, turning his attention away from banning gay marriage for the moment, is taking advantage of the anger over property taxes to push another constitutional amendment--this one to abolish property taxes. Today, he takes out a full-page ad in the Star promoting several tax rallies he has planned around the state during the next month. He also lists those legislators on the side of repealing property taxes along side those who oppose repealing the propert tax. The list of 60 legislators in favor of the repeal includes includes 50 Republican lawmakers and 10 Democratic lawmakers. Sen Richard Young, a Democratic candidate for governor, is among those 10 Democrats. Among the 90 lawmakers opposing a repeal of the property tax are House Republican Leader Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tempore David Long, along with House Speaker Pat Bauer.
