|Former Senator Richard Lugar|
In a meeting with another Republican official, I heard the story of GOP state party officials meeting with Lugar at a hotel and being shocked to find that was where Lugar was living on the rare occasions he would come back to Indianapolis.Then of course it came out that Lugar was, illegally, using a home he had sold approximately 25 years earlier as his residence for voting.
|Marion Mayor Wayne Seybold|
In light of Lugar's history, I find it the height of chutzpah that Lugar announced this morning he is endorsing Marion Mayor Wayne Seybold for State Treasurer. Now, after all these years, Lugar has finally decided to help out a Republican candidate, this time by telling Republican convention-goers they should support a Republican insider over two other Republicans for State Treasurer. Republicans should tell the good Senator thanks but no thanks.
