Indy Democrat has learned that WIBC Radio Personality Greg Garrison will throw out the ceremonial first bill on opening day of the Indiana General Assembly Session.
"It's an honor to be chosen to throw out the first bill. I've heard it's the one banning Sharia Law, so I'm extra excited," said Garrison,.
Those in the know say fellow Emmis employee Tony Katz was also considered, but he wanted his own ceremonial day as well as three minutes to just ramble about something. "They didn't want the trouble," said an unnamed staffer. "They knew Katz would just ramble on and on before throwing it to traffic."
Garrison is the first radio host to throw out the first bill since the late Stan Solomon's controversial toss in 1990.
BREAING NEWS UPDATE:
We've just learned that Garrison won't be able to throw out the first bill. Abdul-Hakim Shabazz will fill in for him because he just can't say no.
