Groppe Writes Puff Piece For Carson
Proving that she is going to be of no assistance in telling 7th District voters just how fast the newest member of Congress sold himself out to the special interests and lobbyists who run Washington, the Star's Maureen Groppe writes a puff piece today about how Carson's fellow black caucus colleagues are helping him out. Maureen, if you want to write press releases for Carson, then become a member of his staff. We want and demand hard news coverage from the Star's Washington bureau. We aren't getting it. That leaves it up to the blogs to get the truth out. And by the way, Maureen, we're still waiting for you to report on Carson's financial disclosure statement. Oh, that's right. You decided we don't need that information until after the May primary. We want to know how much money a city contractor, Cripe, put in Carson's pocket before he went to Congress. Remember, that's the lobbyist job he conveniently took as soon as he was appointed to the Indianapolis City-County Council. Please, do your job.
