He can be a great watchdog, and he does excellent work investigating government. He sometimes raises excellent questions about what's going on and exposes hypocrisy.
Today, he may have stepped off the road and into the abyss.
Welsh penned a blog post about South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. As many of you know, Buttigieg was deployed to Afghanistan as a Naval Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Naval Reserve. Now, he's back safely in South Bend and back to leading his city.
On his blog, Welsh lays out a case (for the second time mind you) that Buttigieg is a high-level spy for the CIA. He doesn't provide anything in the way of proof...only speculation. He also insinuates that Buttigieg's service in Afghanistan might be responsible for the growing drug problems we're seeing in Indiana.
Welsh's off the wall pieces such as this one, his incessant birtherism, and claims such as that Barack Obama is a closet homosexual really undermine the real credibility he has on many local issues. It's unfortunate.
As for South Bend, you have a great Mayor who, from all official accounts, has apparently served his country with distinction.
