Tully Criticizes Massa Camp for Attack Ad

Matt Tully, the Indianapolis Star's political columnist, is a great writer who makes everybody mad at times. That means that he's really good at what he does.

In the last couple of weeks, he has taken on the lobbyist, Dan Coats, saying that the revolving door should be permanently closed on Coats and all but endorsing Brad Ellsworth.

Today, Tully goes after Mark Massa in a well-crafted column that explains what anyone close to the legal system understands. If you are a criminal defense attorney, you defend your client. That's the system when everyone is innocent until proven guilty.

This all goes back to Massa's attack ad on Curry about a child molester that he defended when he was doing criminal defense work. I won't bother to post it here. Curry responded with a "setting the record straight" ad.

Tully's column can be read here.

Matt Tully's right though, you don't go negative like this unless you need to catch up. That means that Terry Curry is the frontrunner for Marion County Prosecutor, according to Mark Massa's campaign.
