Interesting happenings Thursday evening, by a reported vote of 125-36, Melina Kennedy won the endorsement of the Indianapolis Fraternal Order of Police. There are at least 1600 members in the FOP. Greg Ballard won the endorsement of Spencer Moore, the father of David Moore who was killed in the line of duty. The ad is below. Make your own calls on how this impacts the Mayor’s race.
If it were me I would gladly take the endorsement of the guy whose son was killed in the line of duty over the organization that voted to defend David Bisard who allegedly killed someone and critically injured two others while driving drunk.
I’m also told that Marion County Sheriff John Layotn’s campaign paid for about 50 Sheriff’s deputies so they could vote this evening. This should make for interesting mailers, don’t you think? To be honest, I don’t know why any candidate would want the FOP’s endorsement this year.
With that said, this is the last post until Tuesday. It is anniversary weekend and the lovely Mrs. Shabazz takes precedent. After two years the traditional gifts are cotton and straw. However, somehow I think q-tips and a broom won’t quite cut it.
For those of you who still can’t get enough, here’s my appearance on Thursday’s edition of Afternoons with Amos; much fun was had by all.
Enjoy your weekend. I will.
