Dems In Distress...Hoosier Version

 They Just CAN'T Help themselves!

From Indianapolis Star
MUNCIE — Delaware County Treasurer John Dorer was arrested Monday on 47 criminal charges that accuse him of repeatedly mishandling, and in one instance stealing, county funds.
Dorer, 50, Muncie, surrendered to Indiana State Police investigators on Monday afternoon, less than an hour after Delaware County Prosecutor Jeffrey Arnold's office filed the charges — 44 counts of failure to properly deposit public funds, and individual counts of theft, official misconduct and conversion — in Delaware Circuit Court 1.
Dorer — a Democrat elected treasurer in 2008 and re-elected four years later — was being held in the Delaware County jail under a $400,000 bond.

NC Economy Improving Under Republican Leadership

 From Civitas Review

"Today not only marks tax day, but also the release of the 7th Edition of Rich States, Poor States; an annual publication co-authored by economists Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore and produced by the American Legislative Exchange Council. The book "analyzes the effects of current state fiscal policies within each state and ranks the states according to their potential for economic growth."
Thanks largely to last year's tax reform legislation, North Carolina's economic outlook ranking in the book shot up from 22nd to 6th. The climb in rankings was the largest of any state this year.
Gov. McCrory spoke at a press conference this afternoon to highlight the positive impact last year's tax reform is having across the state. According to a press release from his office:
“Whether you are a police officer in Fayetteville, a teacher in Charlotte, a hospital nurse in Carteret County, or truck driver in Reidsville, many North Carolinians are seeing more money in their paychecks thanks to the historic tax reform we crafted and signed into law,” said Governor McCrory. “Not only does this help working families across our state, it also puts North Carolina in a much more competitive position to attract new businesses.”

Politifax Checks out Claim by Virginia Foxx

Politifax, The Tampa Times Pulitizer Prize winning feature, checks out claims by politicians and rates them on it's Truth-O-Meter.

Recently, they checked out Congresswoman Virginia Foxx's claim that "it takes Americans 6.1 Billion hours to prepare their taxes!

The Truth-o-meter says..............TRUE!

Tax day has come around again, and with it a startling claim about the amount of time Americans spend doing their taxes each year.
According to U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., it takes United States taxpayers a total of 6.1 billion hours to file their taxes. That adds up to more than 695,000 years.
"6.1 Billion hours a year, just to figure out how much money the government is going to take," she said in a post on Twitter.
We had to check to see if this number could possibly be accurate. (See Full Story Here)

Britt Springer on "Leave of Absence" from DA's Office?

We started hearing rumors over the weekend that Assistant District Attorney Britt Springer is absent from her job at the District Attorney's office. Springer, a candidate for District Attorney, is - according to some rumors, currently on Leave Without Pay. We stress that this information has not been officially confirmed and, as far as we can tell, no announcements regarding any absence have been made.

We haven't verified the information yet but have begun to hear it from enough sources that we believe it to be credible. Springer was, according to one source, scheduled to prosecute a homicide case in Yancey county Monday but did not appear there as scheduled. Allegedly,  newly appointed interim District Attorney Bob Orr appeared instead

We have NO word on whether  Springer's rumored absence is a voluntary one or not. As soon as we hear any additional information we will post an update.
(Corrected 4/28 to correct Madison county to read Yancey county)

Dem Candidate Mike Dickenson VS Greta..............War on Fox News?

Dickenson has stated that, when elected, he will "wage war on Fox News"......

I doubt Fox News is too worried.

I rarely see the Greta Van Susteren program.....Here she takes on a lying Democrat and he ADMITS he lied ....Which, I suppose, makes him more honest than MOST Democrat candidates!.

Krauthammer's World Class Whiner.

Charles Krauthammer tonight reminded Holder that Attorney General Mitchell went to prison and one president was impeached.  Holder's insinuation that everything is about race makes him a world class whiner.

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION ON CAMPUS....Well, as long as the Adminstration agrees......

Long time poster "Nobody" recently offered an interesting comment on our latest Vent Page...

Nobody said...
On the topic of liberal tyranny and suppression of views they don't like, Brandeis University in Mass recently invited women's rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali to receive an honorary degree and speak at commencement. Following protests led by students, faculty and liberal outside groups, the university rescinded its invitation. Seems that liberals concluded that her advocacy for women's rights in Islamic states constituted "Islamophobia!" I wonder, how do liberals decide whcn to support women and when to persecute them? Which group trumps the other in their support heiroarchy? Apparently in this case, support for Islamists trumped

President Obama's proposal for a 2015 budget was defeated yesterday in the House of Representatives. by a 413 to 2 margin. The two "yes" votes came from Reps. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) and Jim Moran (D-Va.).

Obama supporters quickly pointed out that the trend was up and the vote was a  major improvement over last years vote on Obama's 2014 budget which was unanimously defeated. Yep...ZERO yes votes.

More Double Voting?

As it turns out, none of the 765 voters who were referenced in previous articles (like this one) were voting in Florida. Florida, it seems, is not one of the states that particpates in the Interstate Cross Check of voters.

Readers will recall that 765 individual voters who voted in our NC 2012 elections had the same first name, last name, date of birth AND last 4 digits of their SSN's as voters in one of the 29 states participating.

Now along comes news from  the N.C. Voter Integrity Project, that there may well be an additional 147 people who have possibly cast votes in both NC and Florida

"(Raleigh, NC)— APR 8, 2014—The Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina, today released the results of their year-long research effort that found 5,167 people who appeared to be registered to vote in both Florida and NC, and 147 people who “were involved” in voter fraud. They gave the information to election officials in both Florida and North Carolina, in addition to a member of the NC Senate committee responsible of election law. All of the voters had a matching first name, last name and date of birth.
“For starters, we’re not accusing anybody of committing vote fraud,” said Jay DeLancy, Executive Director of VIP-NC, “but our evidence suggests that all 147 of these voters were either a victim or a perpetrator of vote fraud. We had an additional 283 voters who looked highly suspicious, but without things like Social Security or driver license numbers, we could only offer the evidence to the state for further analysis.”"

Rasmussen Latest Poll on Obamacare

Tuesday, April 08, 2014 

The Obama administration boasted last week that it had surpassed its March 31 goal of signing up seven million Americans through new health insurance exchanges. But few voters consider the new national health care law a success, and most think repeal of the law is likely if Republicans take over Congress in November.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 23% of Likely U.S. Voters view Obamacare as a success so far. Twice as many (46%) describe the health care law as a failure. For 29%, it’s somewhere in between the two.  Rasmussen Reports
