What’s up with Indiana? We did a couple double takes this afternoon when we first heard this story because it didn’t seem like it could possibly be true. And yet it is. The Indiana state ethics commission has ruled that state officeholders may not use state-owned property for political or campaign activity (sounds reasonable enough) … unless they put specific policies in place allowing themselves to do so.
So no using tax payer resources to run your campaign for reelection unless your write yourself a rule that says you can.
