Still others stubbornly refuse. Governor Daniels, who has received nearly $200,000, won't even consider returning the money saying it has been spent. Former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi has refused to return his $200,000 as well even though his campaign committee recently filed showed him plenty capable of returning that money. Attorney Greg Zoeller has indicated, pending the verdict, he's putting his Durham money in a "segregated account," whatever that means. Democrats too also received contributions including former Mayor Bart Peterson who hasn't offered to return the money he received.
Republicans and Democrats should be moving heaven and Earth to find a way to return Durham contributions. Although it will amount to only pennies on the dollar for those Fair Finance investors many of whom lost their life savings, it is the right thing to do not only on a personal level but politically as well. If Gov. Daniels truly aspires to run for President, his refusal to return contributions from Durham will never go away as an issue.
Do the right thing, politicians. Give the money back.
