Steve Shine and The Allen County GOP held a large "ethics seminar" this year to help ensure that our local elected officials behave in an "ethical" manner.
It seems that The Indiana State Police are investigating a 911 call from Steve Shine's house last week.
I have NO IDEA what is going on with this...

A lot of people have asked me what I think about corruption in the Republican Party in the last few months. Many are surprised by my answer.
There are corrupt Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Evangelicals, Priests, Nuns, lawyers, accountants, police officers, etc. There are extremely honest Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Evangelicals, Priests, Nuns, lawyers, accountants, police officers, etc.
I think that power corrupts. The Republican Party has had a lot of power recently and some of their members have behaved in a very corrupt manner.
The 2006 Election removed many of them from power. That is what is supposed to happen.
The ONLY way to fix this is to make government as transparent as possible. Democrats and Republicans have fought this for years and years. Citizens need to do EVERYTHING they can to ensure our government is transparent.
In the past Reporters could be counted on to dig for corruption and to reveal corruption to the voters. Reporters as a whole are doing less of this in the last few years and that is too bad. Bloggers have taken a very active role in this function in the last couple of years.
I think that the rampant Republican corruption in the last few years has hurt The Republican Party and that you will see fewer and fewer Republicans claim to be part of a Party that has more morals and values then those members of other political Parties.
I think EVERY corrupt official should be "booted" out of office.
I also think that we need term limits!
