The latest television ad about protecting children from Governor Mitch Daniels is under fire from a public defender in CHINS (Child in Need of Services) cases.
Chris Worden wrote a letter to Sharon Pierce of The Villages (she appears in the ad.) Worden says Pierce violates IRS rules by appearing in the ad because she works for a not-for-profit. He asks Pierce to call on Daniels to pull the ad.
The letter is being distributed by the Jill Long Thompson campaign. When asked about it the Daniels campaign had no comment.
It's funny that Marion County Democrats didn't see anything wrong with Andre Carson's campaign using Forest Manor Multi-Service Center to stage press conferences to promote his campaign at the center. And didn't one or more not-for-profit employees appear in ads for Carson's campaign?
Note to Carson campaign: Your campaign financial disclosure statements didn't disclose any reimbursement to Forest Manor for the use of their facilities for your political event.
