Benkie was the critical subject of Carmel attorney Joseph Stork Smith's book, Rove-Ing Her Way To the White House: Machiavelli's Sexy Twin Sister , in which Smith portrayed the Republican consultant and occasional media commentator as a scheming, intellectually dishonest shell of a person. Smith was disbarred by the Indiana Supreme Court last year for revealing confidential, sensitive information he obtained about Benkie during his past representation of her in his book. Benkie, a former president of the Young Republican National Federation, was the subject of a controversial Twitter post this past summer which many viewed as racist.
