Tea Partier Gary Wright had heard that Richard Lugar does not live in Indiana anymore……… for the past 30 years or so.
He decided to check for himself and found that Lugar is registered as an Indiana voter at the address of a house that he sold shortly after moving to Washington DC in 1977. His driver’s license says that they still live at the 3200 Highwoods Court, Indianapolis address (where Betsy Hughes lives and occasionally receives Lugar’s mail). No one is bothering to turn over the rocks on this fraud.
Supposedly the Indiana Constitution does not require Lugar to live in Indiana in order to be a senator from here. However one wonders what benefits Lugar has obtained from Indiana while a non-resident for the last 30 years. Other elected officials have been put through the mill on this basis.
Remember…. Lugar also thinks that Kathleen Sebelius is a good choice for head of the Dept. of Health and Human Services. Her Dept is the one threatening Indiana’s Medicare/Medcaid funding because we cut off Planned Parenthood’s tax funding.
