Mark Miles For Governor, Or Mayor?
That's what Star editorial writer Russ Pulliam tosses out for consideration in his weekly column today. He's even getting encouragement from the religious right's Curt Smith, who heads the Indiana Family Institute and is a leading advocate for adoption of a constitutional amendment banning same sex relationships or similar civil unions. The Democratic blog, Indianapolis Times, has speculated that Miles is working behind the scenes to dump Ballard to make way for his own candidacy. Miles is best known for his leadership role at the CICP, a publicly-funded nonprofit that promotes welfare for corporations, including hundreds of millions in subsidies for billionaire sports team owners. He has been a big proponent of the CIB bailout, tax increases and all. One thing is clear. Russ Pulliam is not just engaged in idle speculation. Somebody put a bug in his ear. You can bet on that.
