Sure few GOP freshman House members are putting down roots inside the Beltway, but that didn't stop Marlin Stutzman or Larry Buschon. Doesn't that kind of fly in the face of the campaign rhetoric we heard two years ago and then again this election cycle. It must, Marlin even refused to comment on the article.
The analysis indicates that the GOP freshmen have not put down roots inside the Beltway after promising not to become the “creatures of Washington” that they ran against in 2010. None of the nine freshman Democrats reported having a mortgage in the area.
The Hill’s review of the filings for 2011 found four GOP freshmen with mortgages in the D.C. region: Reps. Larry Bucshon (R-Ind.), Scott Rigell (R-Va.), Marlin Stutzman (R-Ind.) and Rob Woodall (R-Ga.).
Rigell declined to comment. Stutzman’s office did not respond to requests for comment from The Hill.
Ft. Wayne, IN - A grand jury in Huntington County has just returned a seven count indictment against current Huntington County Commissioner, 59 year old Floyd “Tom” Wall on misdemeanor battery charges stemming from an Indiana State Police investigation that was initiated this past spring.
According to Sergeant Kathy Robbins and Detective Jeff Boyd, allegations were made by “several women” that Wall had inappropriately touched them at different times over the last year-and-a-half. Those allegations prompted Huntington County officials to contact the Indiana State Police Criminal Investigation Division at the Fort Wayne Post and an investigation was promptly initiated this past spring.
In June, Boyd concluded and turned over his investigation to Special Prosecutor DJ Sigler, Chief Deputy Prosecutor in Whitley County who had been chosen to oversee the case. After reviewing the case, Sigler convened a grand jury which returned the seven count indictment late this afternoon. Wall is scheduled to turn himself into authorities at the Huntington County Jail this evening.
Huntington County Commissioner Tom Wall has been indicted on 7 Class B misdemeanor battery counts against two women on Friday. According to police, several women made allegations that Wall had inappropriately touched them at different times over the last year-and-a-half. Wall has turned himself in to the Huntington County Jail and bonded out.
The Gary Snyder Show first broke the story back in June and other news organization started picking up on the story when this website published a copy of one of the witness subpoena's last Friday.
NASHVILLE, Ind. – With Colorado, Delaware and Nevada nagging reminders of how a Tea Party candidate can botch a Senate race - and a potential majority, which happened in 2010 - Indiana Republicans remain in danger of losing a Senate seat.
GOP nominee Richard Mourdock trails Democrat Joe Donnelly 40 to 38 percent in the latest Howey/DePauw Indiana Battleground Poll. Libertarian nominee Andrew Horning is pulling 7 percent, perhaps bleeding away crucial support for the candidate who upset U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar in the May primary.
With Republican gubernatorial nominee Mike Pence leading John Gregg 47-34 percent and Mitt Romney up over President Obama 52-40 percent, Mourdock’s numbers represent a dramatic drop-off in support.
Howey/DePauw pollster Fred Yang observes, “With Romney and Pence holding solid double digit leads yet Democrat Donnelly ahead narrowly, Hoosiers are once again showing the ability to ‘split’ their tickets along the lines of 2008 (narrowly voting for Barack Obama, giving Mitch Daniels a landslide victory, and maintaining a Democratic majority in the Statehouse).”

INDIANAPOLIS -- Richard Mourdock became one of the tea party's biggest winners of the 2012 primary season when he knocked off veteran Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar in a brutal campaign built on his contention that Lugar was too old, too out of touch and too friendly with Democrats – a RINO, Republican in name only.
But the movement's biggest RINO hunter is now changing his tune as he tries to woo moderate voters in a tight race that stands as a key test of the tea party's ability to win outside the nation's most conservative states.
Mourdock is matched in the general election against moderate Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly, who is running even in recent polls despite Indiana's Republican tilt. Suddenly, gone is the strident rhetoric in which Mourdock proclaimed that bipartisanship meant Democrats coming over to Republicans' thinking and that winning meant he would "inflict my opinion on someone else." In its place are support for parts of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, pledges to protect Democratic-championed programs like Social Security and Medicare, and even the once-shunned notion of compromise.
