Lawsuit Filed in Grant County Against Marion Mayor Seybold

Mayor Wayne Seybold
Mayor Wayne Seybold of Marion wants to be the next Treasurer of State here in Indiana, but he is having to answer questions about why American Express filed a civil lawsuit against him in Grant County over what they claim to be unpaid credit card bills totaling over $5,300.

Karla Bowsher of the Chronicle-Tribune in Marion writes that the American Express lawsuit says Seybold owes $5,357 to the credit card company.   Sources close to the Mayor's campaign say that the lawsuit is overblown and tell Indy Democrat that it was essentially motivated by Seybold's questions and disputes over the bill.

Republicans Don Bates, Jr. and Kelly Mitchell are both in the hunt with  Seybold for the Republican nomination.

Seybold was in Carmel on Saturday on the campaign trail.

Delegates to the Republican state convention will select their nominee for not only Treasurer but Auditor and Secretary of State.  Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson and Auditor Suzanne Crouch will in all likelihood be on the ticket.  Seybold is the favorite to claim the nomination for Treasurer having wrapped up many high-profile endorsements and having the backing of some high-powered Republicans.  He is a past candidate for U.S. Congress.  So far, the Democrats don't have a candidate for Treasurer.

Incumbent Treasurer Richard Mourdock is term-limited and is rumored to be interested in running for the 8th District Congressional seat currently held by Larry Bucshon.
