“The ad was misleading at best and certainly misrepresented my personal position and the position held by many of my colleagues,” Long said.
The Senate leader went on to clarify that he supports long-term, permanent property tax reform but said the plan must be based on valid numbers and reasonable assumptions.
“If the numbers don’t add up, then we need to find a plan that will provide the permanent tax relief our constituents deserve,” Long said. “To act in any other way would be to put politics and self-interest ahead of the protection and well-being of our citizens.”
The Star added this: "'That must come as a shock,' Long said in a letter to Miller, 'to those members of the House and Senate who were pictured in the anti-repeal section but actually support either the complete or partial elimination of property taxes.'" Now that Sen. Long has been on the receiving end of Miller's misrepresentatons maybe he will show a little mercy to Indiana's GLBT community, which has been scorched plenty by Miller's false and misleading rhetoric on the proposed gay marriage amendment and hate crimes legislation.
