Pence Ceremonial Signing Of $100 Million Bailout For Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Indianapolis Star photo
Gov. Mike Pence held a ceremonial signing of HB 1544 in his office today flanked by the bill's authors, State Rep. Eric Turner and State Sen. Brandt Hershman, and representatives of those counting the dollars the governor just took from your pockets and put in their pockets. IMS CEO Mark Miles has quite the smirk on his face thinking about how easy it is to tap public dollars to enrich one's self in Indiana. I even see Roger Harvey, former WTHR-TV investigative reporter turned influence peddler, standing in the back row behind the governor. Things are so bad in Indiana that even good journalists are corrupted by the system. This is not a moment that Gov. Pence should treasure. It flies in the face of the fiscal conservatism and personal responsibility he's spent the past few decades preaching to the rest of us, but it's good for campaign contributions and that seems to be all that matters to our elected officials anymore.
