Lots of little interesting tidbits of gossip, rumor and political innuendo to throw out there this morning,  so without further adieu… Freedom Works continues to sit on the fence when deciding whether to get into the Richard Lugar/Richard Mourdock U.S. Senate Primary, despite what’s said officially, the word is they don’t trust the local tea […]

One for White, For Now

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Embattled Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White won a victory today at the Indiana Recount Commission.  The body ruled 3-0 (unanimously) that White was eligible to serve as Secretary of State, even though he voted using his ex-wife’s address. You can read the full write up here by my colleague Eric Bradner of the Evansville […]

Damage Control?

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Is the the head of the Baptist Ministers Alliance of Indianapolis engaging in some preemptive damage control?  Maybe.  As you know I during a news conference last week I asked Stephen Clay if he had ever been the subject of an investigation by the Department of Child Services.  Instead of giving me a “yes” or […]

The Indiana Recount Commission is expected to render a decision tomorrow in the case of embattled Secretary of State Charlie White who is accused of voter fraud.  State Democrats say that since White voted at his ex-wife’s address but was registered somewhere else, he should be declared ineligible to hold his office and the seat […]

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

I just finished reading competing perspectives on mass transit by Indianapolis Star columnists Matthew Tully and Erkia D. Smith.   The two are “debating” whether mass transit will ever get off the ground here in the area?   Smith thinks it can with the right leadership behind it, Tully offers a more realistic (or pessimistic) view, depending […]

Two federal judges issued rulings granting injunctions against portions of Indiana’s plan to defund Planned Parenthood and a recently […]

The Question…

Friday, June 24th, 2011

To clear up a few things regarding yesterday’s blog post and my question regarding Stephen Clay of the Baptist Ministers Alliance and whether he had ever been the subject of an investigation by the Indiana Department of Child Services, I’ve embedded the exchange here. The BMA was just wrapping up its news conference when I […]

The Quest Begins…

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

Wednesday I attended a news conference held by the Baptist Ministers Alliance of Indianapolis.  (Yes, I know where this is going too.)  Reverend Stephen Clay and his minions were doing what they do best, accusing Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard of being a racist.   They accused him of “dividing the city” as opposed to uniting it, […]
