“To oppose corruption in government is the highest obligation of patriotism.”

Indy star poster- thanks for posting a copy of Jud McMillins personal example of welfare reform. I can't believe local tea party guy Rick Reuss got behind this rip off artist. Forget the per vert part with dirty pictures it's this guys lack of ethics that gets me asking how could such well meaning people as the self proclaimed " constitutional conservatives" of the tea party go along to get along with a dirt bag like McMillin? For people who claim to be against all forms of welfare and government waste it's pretty clear they 're proud of McMillin and don't care one bit about one of their own going for a 600 thousand dollar money grab. Disappointed in our local party for laying down in the dirt and rolling in the welfare money grab and pretending that's a heric thing to do.

It's dirty politics, dirty money and a dirty $ex scandal. While Rick Berry wouldn't care about lying and ripping off people, and Lisa Shadday makes it clear welfare is for the rich and corporations, Reuss is usually the stand up guy.

The house in question has been empty for much longer than 10 years. I live in Scott's Garden and know it was empty for at least as long as 'sad state' said. The point is currently moot, but the fact remains the city was getting complaints about the house as far back as the late 80s or early 90s. The house is gone now, as it should have been long ago. The last of what they used to call the "Fillmore Alley shacks." I have to say, though, that for being 122 years old, the house could have been in much worse condition. The original owner obviously built it to last. We were certain it would cave in when they blasted the old bridge. The east end of town is definitely beginning to look better!

Now wouldn't have been something had that Eastern wall fallen out when the mayor and Pence were standing there? Would probably had hit them both. What a disaster narrowly avoided! Don't we have a building inspector on the payroll? What does he do, hang out on Duffy all day?

Rep. Jud McMillin submitted his resignation from the Lawrenceburg Regional Grant Committee on Monday.

His action follows revelations in The Indianapolis Star that he and other government officials supported grants for companies to which they had close family or financial ties. In most cases, those connections were not disclosed.

McMillin’s advocated for a $600,000 grant last year for a project involving Destination Brookville, a company he started in August 2010. The grant would have helped restore a local theater and develop a restaurant in a building owned by the company.

McMillin removed himself from the company before pushing for the project in front of the grant committee. While he did not vote on it, some committee members say he failed to disclose the fact that his mother and family friends had control of the company.

In another instance, McMillin voted for a $500,000 grant for a company called Zimmer Tractor without disclosing that his law firm was representing the company. Invoices show McMillin’s firm received about $3,200 for title work and other legal services related to the project.

McMillin has said he wasn't aware of his law firm’s involvement in the project, even though he and his father are the firm’s only attorneys. He also acknowledged that his firm has represented Zimmer on various legal matters for years.

Apparently, there is an interesting side of Rep. Jud McMillin on which the mainstream media has chosen not to report. Before he became a state lawmaker, there were serious allegations of misconduct leveled against him by a 21-year old, female domestic violence victim he assisted while working as a deputy prosecutor in Dayton, Ohio. Apparently, the victim later decided she did not want the charges against her ex-boyfriend pursued, but McMillin, who the victim says had developed a sexual interest in her, threatened her if she did not agree to testify. See the affidavit of the crime victim here. The crime victim alleged that McMillin once showed up drunk at her apartment and propositioned her while still working on her case. Although he later removed himself from the case, the crime victim alleged that McMillin sent her sexually explicit photos of himself during a period she admits that she briefly became involved in a sexual relationship with him. According to the Bilerico blog, one of the photos showed McMillin jacking off while shoving a * * * up his * * *. The blog also cited a law enforcement source for an allegation that McMillin was caught having * * * with the young woman in his car in a state park. A real turn on, eh? McMillin resigned his job as a deputy prosecutor after his boss learned of the allegations. The victim later filed a civil lawsuit against McMillin, which she later agreed to voluntarily dismiss.

Get your facts straight 'sad state.' Alexander's father passed away in 2001. 2014 minus 2001 equals thirteen. Tghe former owner was in a nursing home a SHORT period, but not for 27 years. Your forty years minus 13 equals 27.

Buried in today's local rag (page A8)is the notice of a "special meeting" at MCS to "discuss" closing Deputy School and "plans" for E O Muncie. Folks, Bollinger & her 5 little surfs on the school board are marching forward on their $69 Million dollar solution to their malfeasance administration of MCS schools. Sorry the meeting started at 5pm.

“Anybody got facts” Regrettably the rumor you heard about the local Tea Party tying in tight with State Rep Judd McMillin is correct. This past Monday Jud McMillin was a guest on “The People with Josh and Rick Show”. It appears our local Tea Party admires McMillin’s failed welfare reform attempts and is willing to overlook is past history of petty theft allegations, vehicular homicide, prosecutorial misconduct, resigning from a job after a * * * scandal, and most recently, grant fraud.

I laughed at the "factual" article in the local rag regarding the old white house. Only empty for ten years, huh? I've been living here for close to forty years and in that time there has never been an occupant there. It's a shame that the owner didn't think enough of his heritage to at least clear it out before demolition.
