Richard Mourdock is already making Indiana look bad with SEC probeby Dee Dee Garcia Blase on May. 07, 2012, under 2012 United states senate races
So we have Joe Arpaio here from Arizona who has gone to Indiana stumping for Richard Mourdock, but what the Hoosiers don’t know is
that our Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department/staff has mishandled almost $100 million dollars of our taxpayer dollars (his staff mispent $100 million dollars).
In fact, Republicans and the GOP are distancing themselves from our clown with a badge — see National Review story here.
I guess birds of a feather will flock together.
From the HUFFPO:
WASHINGTON — A retired Indiana state trooper has asked the Securities Exchange Commission to investigate whether state Treasurer Richard Mourdock, a candidate for Senate, broke pay-to-play rules in offering a contract to manage police pension money while he was raising campaign cash from Wall Street.
Mourdock, a favorite of the Tea Party, is leading incumbent Sen. Dick Lugar heading into Tuesday’s Republican primary, according to polls. But his campaign has struggled to raise money, and former state police 1st Sgt. Thomas Frailey told HuffPost that he had concerns about Mourdock seeking a hedge fund of funds manager for the Indiana State Police Pension Fund around the time he was holding a Manhattan fundraiser with representatives of the finance industry.
In the case of the Indiana state police pension fund, Mourdock issued a request for proposals to manage some $50 million in February, setting a date to receive those proposals of March 2. HuffPost has obtained a copy of an invitation the campaign faxed on Feb. 16 for a March 6 fundraising lunch at the Lexington Avenue offices of NGN Capital in New York, hosted by Steve Forbes, Alfred Angelo and NGN Capital boss Ken Abramowitz.
