Durham's legal woes have had a devastating ripple effect through Marion County republican politics. Prosecutor Carl Brizzi, a personal and political associate of Durham's, issued a statement distancing himself from the financier, claiming that while he was on the board of Fair Financial, he never participated in meetings or decisions, did not receive any compensation and has resigned from the board. Durham gave well in excess of $100,000 to Brizzi's 2006 re-election campaign and regularly holds six-figure fundraisers for the prosecutor. Tim Motsinger, an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police lieutenant and front runner for the republican nomination to become Marion County Sheriff next year, closed down his campaign Wednesday night when it was revealed that he had received a $200,000 campaign loan from Durham. Durham also serves as the chairman of the Greater Indiana Republican Finance Committee and personally steered more than $300,000 to the election campaign of Governor Mitch Daniels.

Certainly the entire financing of Motsinger's campaign wasn't based on Durham's individual and personal contributions. Motsinger, who had strong support among establishment Republicans, certainly would have been favored to win slating and probably the nomination as well. There is no reason to believe Motsinger could not have raised plenty of money, independent of Durham, to be competitive ina general election. Motsinger's withdrawing from the race would seem an extreme overreaction. I have never heard of a candidate dropping out because he or she lost a political contributor. One wonders whether there might be more to this story.

Hmmm....makes you wonder doesn't it? The Feds took a massive amount of documentation out of the offices during the raid. Do you suppose it's causing a lot of sleepless nights for some who may be wondering about the possibility of incriminating evidence which could widen the net? I'm getting some very, very interesting google searches on my stat counter from various corners of the country.

What is known about Securatex? According to information received from the Secretary of State website, it is a for-profit foreign corporation based in Illinois. The
Business Service Advisor listed for Securatex is former Marion County Sheriff Jack Cottey.
As a side note, here is a link to March, 2007 Advisory Minutes for the Marion County Community Corrections Department, which reports that Securatex was approved for a multi-million dollar contract for the department even though it was not the low bidder. More than one of the board members listed have been linked to a corruption investigation involving Tim Durham, who has also reportedly hired the firm to provide security for lavish parties that he has hosted.
Sources say that more shocking details about this situation will be forthcoming in the days and weeks ahead as members of the local media have reportedly been asking questions about the controversy.

There is news that Durham has links to the corruption case involving two Henry County law enforcement officers who are facing charges of ghost employment. Durham is listed as a witness for the state in that case according to WRTV's Rafael Sanchez. The two police officers involved in that criminal prosecution may have provided off-duty security work at lavish parties Durham put on at his Geist mansion. Those two police officers are represented by the same criminal defense attorney who is representing Durham, Indianapolis attorney John Tompkins. People might be asking if these two officers worked for the private security company owned by former Marion Co. Sheriff Jack Cottey, who is also tied to Tim Motsinger. Did Cottey's firm staff those parties? There was a story circulating around town awhile back about FBI agents being staked outside Durham's residence taking down the license plate numbers of all of the guests at one of his parties.

Yeah, Brizzi can drive him in the Viper up to PT's Show Club. They can celebrate with their buds Tim Durham, Lincoln Plowman, Tim Motsinger, and Jack Cottey.
Our town is becoming known as the place for drunken political kooks and crooks.
