  • Weinzapfel announces for attorney general
    “I am committed to restoring honor and integrity to the office of Attorney General. Through my work as mayor, chancellor, state representative and private legal practice, I know how to work together with people, putting politics aside, to get things done and make our lives better. As Attorney General I will work for the people of Indiana and ensure the laws work for them, not politicians, big corporations, or special interests in Washington.” - Former Democratic Evansville mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel, who announced Tuesday he is seeking the Democratic attorney general nomination to serve as the next Attorney General for the state of Indiana in the 2020 election. He will face State Sen. Karen Tallian for the nomination. Republican incumbent Attorney Curtis Hill is seeking a second term and is facing a convention floor challenge from Zionsville attorney John Westerkamp. Hill is facing an Indiana Supreme Court judicial review of his law license after sexual groping allegations surfaced in 2018. Gov. Eric Holcomb and Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch have called for Hill to resign. Weinzapfel was elected mayor in 2003 and 2007 and served as Chancellor of the Ivy Tech Evansville campus from 2014-2019. He also served in the Indiana General Assembly as a State Representative from 1999-2003 and unsucccessfully sought the 8th CD against U.S. Rep. John Hostettler. He currently works as a partner at the law firm of Jones Wallace in Evansville.

  • Into the impeachment vortex ...
    Here we go. Where America ends up in early 2020 after the fourth presidential impeachment that got underway this week is anyone's guess. 

    When I wrote the Sept. 19 HPI cover story - "The Double Dog Impeachment Dare"  - the Ukraine quid pro quo scenario was just beginning, becoming a full congressional/media vortex suck. Regular Hoosiers I know aren't paying much attention and are polarized by President Trump.

    We'll restate past thoughts on these alleged high crimes and misdemeanors: 1. Impeachments are messy and unpredictable. 2. Impeachment is an American tragedy. 3. Impeachment will result in unintended consequences. 4. Hoosiers are prepared to render a verdict on President Trump at the ballot box next November. 5. If we get into a mode where we're impeaching an American president every 20 years, the fragile American experiment will be doomed.
