UPDATE: Some hope there is some sanity left in the legislature. Senate President David Long will not commit to allowing a hearing on this taxpayer ripoff much to the disappointment of WISH-TV's Jim Shella, whose TV station pimps nonstop for this taxpayer boondoggle because of its financial relationship with Ozdemir's Indy Eleven.
Sen. Long says soccer stadium discussion may not bear fruit. No commitment to a Senate hearing.It looks like fake conservative State Sen. Brandt Hershman's vote has been bought off. He plans to offer an amendment to the bill and give it a hearing next week to make its passage more palatable in the Tax & Fiscal Policy Committee according to the Gannett-owned Indianapolis Star, which is blocking reporting of the rampant corruption occurring in plain view over at the State House to ensure passage of more public funding for another sports palace. There should be an undercover FBI sting operation taking place in that State House right now so all of these crooks can be rounded up and hauled out of the State House in handcuffs, but this is Indianapolis, the most corrupt city in all of America where no such thing can occur. We're sick and tired of our government officials being bought by people with filthy money who think the public treasury is a spigot that can be turned on and off as they please to finance their own private self-serving interests.

Only about 50 people showed up for the rally in support of this pathetic attempt to rape taxpayers and over half of them are on Ozdemir's payroll.
