HE seeds to sing like a canary and have all of the no good tea baggers indicted.

Larry Mackey and Jason Barclay, lawyers with the Indianapolis powerhouse firm Barnes and Thornburg, are representing Bennett before the State Ethics Commission. Barclay helped draft an overhaul of state ethics laws in 2005 while working as a lawyer for former Gov. Mitch Daniels. And Mackey built a national profile prosecuting Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh before taking over the white-collar defense arm of Barnes and Thornburg.

The ethics commission not only could banish Bennett from future state work in Indiana but also could refer the case to Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry for a criminal investigation.

He is a BAllard Buddy! Wonder if he pokes the monkey too?

Every time a tea party/republican or whatever they call themselves now. child porno kings, queers whatever. They seem to say I'm not guilty even when they get caught with there hands in the cookie jar. Stupid republicans.

Barnes and Thornburg evidently own the state government; they're involved in every aspect of it.

If Bennett had any ethics to begin with, he wouldn't be indicted now.
