Indiana Securities Commissioner Resigns

The woman Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson appointed as the state's securities commissioner less than two years ago abruptly resigned her position last Friday. Carol Mihalik offered a curt, two-sentence letter to Lawson announcing her resignation. Without commenting on the reason for her departure, Lawson praised her work on behalf of the state in a statement her office released to the media. Lawson's chief of staff, Brandon Clifton, will serve as an interim securities commissioner.

Everyone who has ever worked with Carol at the Attorney's General's Office and the Department of Insurance (certainly including Jim Atterholt who specifically instructed me to work around her and go to directly to him on matters) knew that Carol had some major issues, to say the least. Everyone. That Connie Lawson apparently didn't know that when she appointed CA as Securities Commissioner is what is absolutely astonishing.

I've heard securities lawyers speak favorably of her work as securities commissioner.
