As I continue to read about the scandal-plagued Mitch Daniels administration, I wonder where is the outrage? The latest controversy involves Marion University President Daniel Elsener. He was a major contributor to Republican candidates and was recently named as a political "independent" to the State Board of Education.
I wish to congratulate The Times for its continuing coverage of the way in which Daniels and now our current governor has undermined the election process in which Glenda Ritz, who was voted in as state superintendent of education, continues to be sidelined by the board.
This effort undermines the voting process. So this leads me to ask: Where is the outrage? Where is the outrage by the Indiana State Teacher’s Association? Where is the public’s outrage? My only explanation for this “silence” is apathy. Perhaps the public will “wake up” during the next election cycle. Don’t hold your breath!
