I am certainly not an "anti-Republican" blogger. I do criticize Republicans who betray their conservative principles or are corrupt. I guess that bothers Kyle Walker. Too bad. I am more of a Republican than Kyle Walker ever thought of being.
Fired from the Indiana Department of Insurance? Uh, yeah, for WHISTLEBLOWING. I tried to report a supervisor who was misappropriating funds from the title insurance division I headed. I wrote a memo on that and other legal violations and was immediately fired for doing so. Apparently Kyle Walker has no problem with people in state government misappropriating money. I do.
A gadfly attorney? You betcha. Indianapolis attorneys were complaining about Judge Young fining people $400 or $500 for daring to ask for a trial in Traffic Court, a direct violation of their constitutional rights. While others attorneys complained, I did something by filing a lawsuit. As a result both the Indiana General Assembly and the Indiana Supreme Court stepped in to put a stop to the practice. I also stood up to prosecutors across the state who were illegally pocketing forfeiture proceeds instead of giving the money to the state's schools. Apparently Kyle Walker has no problem with public officials who violate the law. I do. And I don't care if they are Republican or Democrat.
Not endorsed by the Republican Party? Correct. There isn't a single candidate on the ballot who has been endorsed by the Republican Party. Party endorsements happen on May 8th. There have been 10 judicial candidates who have been endorsed by appointees of the county chairmen after paying $12,000 apiece. The Judicial Commission has said that is a violation of the ethics rules for pay a slating fee for an endorsement. Governor Daniels has said that Walker's slating system is a travesty and the $12,000 fee amounts to purchasing judgeships. I refuse to violate the ethics rules to pay a county chairman for an endorsement. Period.
By this unconscionable mailing attacking fellow Republicans, Kyle Walker showed he is man without honor or integrity.
