Crooks Calls Eric Miller "Worst Hoosier"
WISH-TV's political reporter Jim Shella quotes State Rep. Dave Crooks (D-Washington) as saying Advance America's Eric Miller is "the most misleading and dishonest person [he's] ever met in the Statehouse.” “If you people listening out there are sending this guy money, you oughta be ashamed,” Shellas quotes Crooks. The legislator owns his own radio station in Washington, Indiana where he hosts a weekly radio show. A new feature on his show, "Worst Hoosier," gave first honors to Miller according to Shella. Shella speculates that Crooks wouldn't have said what he did if he didn't own his own radio station and wasn't up for re-election.
