Another complaint filed against Andre Carson -- Press Conference on the Circle at 1pm

Adam Longworth, an east side citizen, filed a campaign ethics complaint against Andre Carson. Gary Welsh has coverage of it here.

The only candidate not drawing fire for unethical behavior is Sean Shepard, the Libertarian. Sean is planning a press conference at 1pm on the south side of the circle today. He plans to address a couple serious economic developments that recently came to light that affect the nation's economy. As far as we are aware, Elrod and Carson are oblivious to the problem.

We will update you after the press conference.

I hope a competent attorney pointed out to poor confused Adam Longworth and Sean Shepard the section of the law following the clip they used:

(b) This section does not prohibit any of the following:

(1) A state police department civilian employee from voting while on duty.

(2) A police officer or firefighter from voting while wearing any part of an official uniform or while on duty.

(3) An individual described in subsection (a) from consenting to a photograph (or other visual depiction) of the individual wearing any part of the individual's official uniform appearing in an advertisement in support of a candidate or political party.


In other words, the law explicitly says it is perfectly legal for a LEO to appear in a political advertisement. It happens all this time in Hoosier politics!

Sean Shepard has nothing to do with the complaint or interpreting the law. We simply made use of the space on this blog to bring up the fact that he was going to be at a press conference today.

Isn't this the 2nd complaint filed against Andre Carson in two weeks?

Wilson? Where was Andre Carson on the recent news of David Walker's resignation and the announcement made this week by the FDIC?

Surely Carson is concerned about the dying fiscal state of our nation, isn't he? I haven't heard him say word one about it.

Truth be known, Carson likely has no clue who David Walker is or what he does. Clue: "The Ultiimate Sell Signal" !
