Indianapolis-- TEA Party State Treasurer Richard Mourdock’s attempt to force Chrysler into liquidation remains one of the least-understood parts of his record in office, a problem Indiana Democrats say they’re going to solve with the release of My Way or the Highway: The True Story or Richard Mourdock’s Job Killing Quest Against the American Automotive Industry and How it Launched a TEA Party Hero. My Way or the Highway is an e-book, and available for free download here as a PDF or here for e-readers including the Amazon Kindle, with release pending on Amazon.com.
Democrats say that it highlights several under-reported aspects of Mourdock’s lawsuit against Chrysler, including his agreement to an earlier deal that contradicts his explanations for suing, the strange timing of his decision to hire a Manhattan law firm, and the guaranteed financial loss he was exposing Indiana to by filing suit.
“TEA Party State Treasurer Richard Mourdock has serious questions to answer, and had refused to do so,” said Indiana Democratic Party Chair Dan Parker. “His ‘my way or the highway’ politics cost Hoosiers millions of taxpayer dollars and nearly killed 100,000 Indiana jobs. Indiana deserves a Senator focused on job creation, not one who says he ‘didn’t take a pledge to protect every job in Indiana.’”
