I agree completely. Waterman gets heavy support from the coal mine community in the rural areas he represents. The folks in urban areas like Terre Haute and Vincennes are confused about what he really represents. They think they are voting for a Republican but many of his policies are from the left. He gives and gets heavy support from the local coal laborers union. Go to a local parade in Dugger Indiana and watch his political opponent get boos and heckled as they pass by. john Waterman was even arrested for a D.U.I. years ago by a State Trooper after the car he crashed the car he was driving and killed a young woman. The charges were dropped. Waterman doesn't deny it...just ask him. He admits he was drunk but his story was the accelerator stuck. But the coal mine community sure keep it hushed up in the Sullivan area. The local Democrats have a copy of the news story. Just ask they will give it to you. You can go to the Vigo Public library and get a copy but someone took a knife to it and ripped up the microfish. Just ask for the damaged microfish and they will still let you make a copy but it. It contains all the names of those involved and the dead girl.

Who are the two Democrats that were suppose to have killed someone "whatever". I'm more of an independant than anything and would like to know. It isn't like John put a gun to her head and pulled the trigger...he just got drunk and wrecked.

You wouldn't know an IP address if you fell over it in the parking lot. Only those at the server level can determine who has a particular IP, and to get that from them would take a warrant. What a fool...

You people need to get facts straight and quit sitting at home coming up with ideas to make him look bad. I'm his son. And he has told me this story many times. He was NOT arrested for D.U.I. He didnt even have alchohol that night. The car he owned was an old sports car and the motor mouth on the engine broke and cause the engine to slip torwards the left. Doing this, it cause the gas pedal to lunge towards the floor and go at full aceleration. He could not stop what happened, even with the brakes full pressed. Stop running your mouths about something you know nothing of.

Stop drinking the koolaid john dillinger. Waterman used to make up stories deny any responsibility for that young womans death. John Waterman was in fact arrested for drinking and driving. He thought since "someone" took a knife to the microfish he could make up his own story. But we discovered the damaged microfish at the Vigo County Library. It was in the backroom being kept with the other damaged microfish. We pieced it back together and made copies. The girls name is included in the article along with the location of her death and State Troopers name who hauled his drunk ass off to jail. The young girls family have a very interesting story regarding their daughters death and how Indiana State Senator John Waterman weaseled his way out of the charges. I'm thinking some copies need to be mailed to the news media throughout the state. And to MADD. These are the facts...regardless of what any little crony of John Waterman says.

You need to get back in your tin foil room. That accident happened in 1970 or 71. Waterman was 19. The following inquirey determined that Waterman had done nothing wrong. I did read the record and you're full of crap.

Every dog has it's day...and you had yours. It is over. Roll it up and take it home. You became one of them. At the start you were going to make changes. Well...ya didn't. You love Elvis, and that is enough for me to vote against you.
