Charlie White: A True Hoosier Embarrassment
Thank you to the Hoosiers that voted for Charlie White for Indiana Secretary of State. I wish I could shake every one of your hands. You have truly elected a great public servant who thinks of his state over himself. He's a true public servant in every way. In case you didn't know, that's a little sarcasm. In reality, Charlie White is an Indiana embarrassment, and he keeps proving it.
White filed a criminal complaint against Susan and Evan Bayh for taking a homestead credit and continuing to vote in Indiana despite the fact that White claims they live in the Washington, D.C. area. Now, I'm not the biggest Evan Bayh fan in the world, and the fact that he's become Fox News' token Democrat (along the lines of Dick Morris, Greta Van Susteran, and, formerly, Alan Colmes) is not lost on me. But, this is not a case that's filed on its potential merits. It's filed for Charlie White's personal benefit. In other words, to prove a personal point. The Secretary of Shame...er...State's complaint is filled with personal language, attacks, and vitriol. Regardless of any merit this case might have (and I'm a teacher not a lawyer), I think the way the complaint is written gets in the way of whatever message is contained within it.
It's clear that Charlie White is an angry man and he's now, it appears to me, using his office for his own benefit. Kind of makes you long for the good old days of Todd Rokita.
If you voted for Charlie White, I hope you're happy with your vote because it makes me nauseous.
