In the May 24 article about Mike Boland running for office as state treasurer in Indiana, he made a comment I could not believe. He's been bothered that Republicans control nearly every office in state government.

Whoa, hold on. It seems his is coming from a state where the entire place is run by Democrats. He abandoned a state he helped bankrupt, for the solvent Indiana, and now wants to start running Indiana into the gutter.

Take your greedy Marxist ideas back to Illinois. I moved here to get away from your type.
