The non-partisan activist group HOOSIERS FOR FAIR TAXATION plans to photograph and video attendees of democratic fundraiser for minority business invitees on October 3rd at from 5:30 pm to 7pm at 1449 North Pennsylvania.

We are watch dogs for city council corruption and were alerted to a fundraiser organized by former Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Robin Winston appealing to minority contractors on behalf of Democratic CCC members with a warning of possible changes if Democrats failed to maintain control of the council.

Winston, whose website describes his firm as the "largest minority-owned government affairs, community relations and public outreach firm in Indiana" tells the minority contractors they can't "afford" to let Democrats lose control of the CCC.

For the record, Republicans have three African-American candidates for the CCC, including Bruce Henry in District 1 and at-large candidates Barbara Malone and Kent Smith. The Democrats have ten African-American candidates for the CCC.

Here is the full text of Winston's letter.
