Mitch Daniels Takes a Side Gig

Our former governor obviously has too much free time on his hands.

Daniels has been named a Contributing Columnist at The Washington Post.

He is currently the President of Purdue University, and previously served two terms as Governor of Indiana from 2004 to 2012.

Few Takers for Pence Dinner Tix

Your Indianapolis Observer finds it amusing that the Hudson Institute (which fled Indy for the bright lights of New York City about a decade ago) is having trouble selling tickets for their November 28 dinner featuring Vice-President Mike Pence.

Their solicitations for purchase are increasing in frequency and evident desperation.

Maybe, just maybe, few people want to be seen in public supporting this enabler of the current president.

His credibility, after all, has been shredded during the past year.

Pence Wastes Indy Taxpayer Money (Again)

Remember Vice President Mike Pence's Colts game walk-out stunt last month? Yep: it cost Indy taxpayers big bucks for his 15 minutes of fame (or, depending on your point of view, infamy).

According to Huffington Post, we forked over $14,000 in extra costs accrued by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (bringing the total for the piece of theater to close to $100,000).

“Vice President Pence should know better than to use taxpayer money to make a rhetorical point, but carelessness with taxpayer money seems to be a common theme with senior administration officials,” noted Noah Bookbinder, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
