Allegation Against Adamson Resolved with No Charges

Christian Mosburg, me and Zach Adamson
on the campaign trail in 2011
It feels good to finally be able to write something about this, but a special prosecutor declined to charge City-County Council Vice President Zach Adamson after a seven-week investigation into an allegation made against him.

I won’t lie. It was hard for me to be unbiased on the situation, so I elected to not write anything on the blog about it at all. I was too angry to begin to discuss it.  Instead, I went about supporting my friend behind the scenes.

In my heart and mind, I knew nothing would come of this allegation and that the situation would come to this end, but it was hard to watch one of my best friends have his reputation besmirched in such a fashion by allegations that were not true.

Since the unfounded allegation hit the media, I've been passing the many well-wishes of people I know who have told me to tell Zach and his husband Christian Mosburg that they were thinking of them. I even was stopped in the grocery store by a concerned community member who wanted me to make sure to tell Zach and Christian she was praying for them.

Adamson released a statement:
From the beginning, we have maintained that the accusations against me were false. We are pleased that after 7 weeks of extensive investigations by the police, they have come to the same conclusion.  
We're grateful to the IMPD detectives working on this matter and thank them for their thorough investigation. 
I wish to thank the many people here in Indianapolis and around Indiana who've reached out to express their unequivocal support for me and my family during this time. 
We look forward to putting this behind us so we can get back to the important work of improving the quality of life for the people of the 17th District and across Indianapolis.
