“No, I didn’t break any law in Indiana or Virginia,” he said. ”We took reasonable steps to keep my intent (of being an Indiana resident).”
McIntosh sat down with The Herald Bulletin on Friday at his rental house off Seventh Street to talk about the residency issues that have plagued him the past couple of months. He admits that he could have handled it better. Instead of directly answering reporters’ questions regarding his residency, his campaign had played up his conservative credentials and focused on his opponents’ perceived shortcomings.
Two of his five opponents — Susan Brooks and John McGoff — in Tuesday’s primary have been most active in portraying McIntosh as someone who dodged the law in order to run for Congress, by either lying to get a Virginia driver’s license or lying to vote in Indiana while living in Arlington.
