Elwood Mayor Resigns Over Misspent Campaign Funds
Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom)
This is what pisses me off so much about Indiana. These bit players get taken down over the most trivial of matters while the most corrupt politicians skate on far more serious crimes. The investigative practices of the ISP on public corruption matters is indeed very peculiar.
I met this idiot back in 2001 when he worked for Mike Pence's congressional campaign. I think he might've also worked on his congressional staff.
He talked to me about coming to work on the Pence re-election campaign and described himself as a "good Christian," and he asked me what church I attended (none, I replied). He added that campaign staffers wouldn't be required work on Sunday because that's when everyone should be in church "singing to the Lord."
Just because someone is religious doesn't make him an "idiot." It is clear to me that this man is being targeted for exceedingly minor violations while politicians across the state have been involved in much worse violations and nothing happens to them.
Our Mayor in Martinsville, Phil Deckard, signed his a city contract to hire his own Auction Company to auction off over $80K worth of tax payer property and paid himself a commission of near $3K. Why isn't this a crime? Its Indiana.
