25th floor shreds The People's documents non-stop during last week of Bart Peterson's administration

Yes, the headline is true. If you read yesterday's Indy Star Metro section, you learned that Bart Peterson was anything but helpful to the incoming Ballard team. In fact Peterson, according to city county employees, had the shredder going non-stop with The People's newly destroyed documents moving straight from the 25th floor to waiting city trash trucks.

Here are questions we want the media and the FBI to investigate:

1. Were documents transferred from the city records division directly to the 25th floor during the city records moving day last month?

2. Did any of the destroyed records relate in anyway to the Veolia water deal that Bart Peterson and Burt Servaas hatched behind closed doors and without public oversight?

3. Why did Peterson leave the office in disarray?

4. What does former Peterson aid and spokesperson, does Justin Ohlemiller know?

5. What role did city legal counsel, Kobi Wright, and local lawfirm Ice Miller play in the destruction of documents?

6. How many truckloads of destroyed documents were removed from the mayor's office?

7. Which documents were destroyed? And why?

All very good questions but a little late.
One only need look at the Ballard transition team members to gain some idea of what these documents were that went thru the shredder.
Remember former United States District Attorney Susan Brooks was on the Ballard transition team. Don't look for any help from her or Brizzi.
In four years they'll bring the shredder back out again.

Susan Brooks and Brizzi's name coming up again regarding corruption coverups. Keep seeing that connection over and over.

And you will keep seeing their names come up until someone calls them out.
I'm still wondering exactly why Timothy Durham "donated" $136,000 to Brizzi's war chest. I don't know what protection money is running these days so maybe Durham got a deal for 136K.
Special note, Durham is an ex son-in-law of Beurt Servaas.

The problem is that Greg Ballard obviously can not see anything! Is this guy blind or just out-to-lunch? Susan Brooks has been involved in corruption for many years. Can you guess how she got the job at IVTect? Was it a pay-off for many years of protection of Ticket Houses? Carl" Lap Dance" Brizzi? What a joke this man is. He never acted to address the corruption of the Peterson Mob or the Ghetto Mafia. Peterson had him by his "BALLS" based on the incident in Florida! How do you think that you got Scott Newman as Director of P.S.? Susan Brooks, Carl Brizzi and Steve Goldsmith! My question is does Greg Ballard get to pick any of his staff?

All of Ballard's "seeing eye" folks were shoved into the corner, some were flat out left on the battlefield as Ballard skipped away new security and the crooks who did not support him. I'm wondering if Ballard is "stupid" and we just didn't realize it.

You can write this down and put it away for reference later.
Ballard will not shut down the black illegal numbers racket (pea shakes).
No Mayor or Prosecutor in the history of Indianapolis has ever shut these places down and Ballard will not be an exception.
With the Newman and Brizzi tag team crime will increase under Ballard.
There is a power structure that runs Indianapolis and it's not located on the 25th floor of the City County Building.
As much as I hated Peterson I detest Country Club politics more. That's what we have now.
Ballard has one inaugural party at $500 a head for the City's elite and one for the peasants at $5 a head.
Don't expect corruption to abate just becasue there's a new Mayor in town.

Greg Ballard is certainly a disappointment. I saw him before the election with many dedicated supporters. After he was elected he dropped them and took up with the Steve Goldsmith team. This is the team that almost wrecked Indianapolis before Peterson destroyed it. Now Greg Ballard has betrayed all of those who supported him and brought in the GOP Nightriders who actually supported Bart Peterson. Greg Ballard -Get a clue?????

I saw Scott Newman doing an interview??? Ballard are you serious?
Bring back Julia Carson!

Susan Brooks is a racist and has always been one. Her husband David Brooks was the chairman of the Tom Schneider for Sheriff effort. One racist leading another. Greg Ballard has put Susan Brooks on his transistion Committee. I wonder if they all wear their white sheets at the transistion meetings?

looks like the TDW crowd found its way here today.

Did anyone consider that maybe, just maybe, Ballard is smart enough not to trust any of these people? I am encouraged that he's really taking the bull by the horns in regard to IMPD.

Let's wait and see what he does.

Mel, these aren't TDW people. They were Ballard supporters and I'm one of them.
