Just When You Think Things Can't Get Worse...

"City hall is for sale. If you contribute when asked and engage a connected law firm to assist you, who knows how much taxpayers' money you can walk away with. Let your imagination roam freely."

Read the rest of Advance Indiana's commentary here. Yeah, he's talking about the sweetheart deal given to Tadd M. Miller.

There's more in this week's Indianapolis Business Journal: "The Capital Improvement Board could be forced to give up one of its most profitable assets so the city can pull off a $65-million public-private downtown development deal," notes Cory Schouten of IBJ. "But the potential hit to the CIB is only one of several hidden costs to taxpayers within the city’s latest public-private development effort."

This Indianapolis Observer is, well, both depressed and horrified.
