Indy Politics Reports Sawyer to Resign

Indiana Auditor Dwayne Sawyer will resign this week just four months after taking the job.  That's according to Abdul-Hakim Shabazz's Indy Politics website.

According to Shabazz, "It is unclear exactly what compelled Sawyer to tender his resignation, but it is believed to be personal in nature."  Shabazz said there's no word on any possible replacement by Governor Pence.

Sawyer was expected to run for the office next year.  Mike Claytor is the Democrat in the race.

When we know more, we'll pass it along.

Makes you wonder, if you take it for its face value then stepping down for family reasons is understandable.

But if you want to think about this in more political terms, it makes me wonder is there something in Sawyer's past or something that could be about to break that would cause problems for a candidate/office holder!!
