cop and Black male involved in shooting. Mayor Tom McDermott, Jr. and his
lawyers had a “pow wow” over this narrative… City of Hammond paid Germaine
Taylor $100, 000 to “hush his mouth and go away”. Which he did… Mayor McDermott,
Jr did the same thing with Maria Becerra, he gave her $200,000 to hush her
mouth and go away. And that’s why the story about $30,000-dollar donation to
then Governor Mitch Daniels and a pardon for Aaron McDermott. Don’t surprise me.

can speak your mind and ask questions.
Mitch Daniels is weighing
a run for president 22 years after he glumly told his college newspaper,
the Princetonian, that "any goal I might have had for competing for
public office were shot."Though Daniels is often
knocked as a dull numbers guy, his past is actually among the most
colorful of any Republican contender's, beginning with the surprisingly
little-known fact that he was arrested and jailed in a drug sting
operation that centered on his Princeton University dorm room.
According to campus
newspaper reports supplied by the university, Daniels and two other
students were swept up in a five-month joint investigation between New
Jersey state police and local police that culminated in the May 14th, 1970
raid on Daniels' shared room at111 Cuyler Hall.
Daniels and the two other
students were initially charged with possession of marijuana, LSD and
prescription drugs without a prescription and with "maintaining a
common nuisance by maintaining a place for the sale of narcotics."
A local detective
testified that police had seized "enough marijuana to fill two size
12 shoe boxes and quantities of prescription drugs were found in the
room," according to a dispatch in the Daily Princetonian, whose
archives aren't available online for that year.
The undercover state
police officer involved in the sting visited Daniels' room "eight or
nine times" and "observed narcotics paraphernalia, saw marijuana
and hashish being used, and purchased marijuana prescription drugs and
Daniels was never
implicated in selling the drugs, and has never hidden the incident. During his
2004 run for governor, a former roommate told the Indianapolis Star that
Daniels "had nothing to do" with selling drugs, saying "I
was busted." The roommate went on to say he was no fan of then-President
Bush and would have gladly offered unflattering information about a GOP
candidate if he'd had it.
Prosecutors later dropped
the stiffer charges against Daniels, and he pled guilty to a disorderly
person charge based on his use of marijuana, paying a $350 dollar fine.
During his political
campaigns, Daniels has discussed the arrest, and he held a security
clearance during his time in the Bush and Reagan administrations; he has
typically characterized it as a minor pot arrest, and typically doesn't
mentioning the initial acid charge.
Even before President
Obama made elective office safe for the admitted use of, even, hard drugs,
Daniels took back his assessment that he was finished for elective office.
He told the Princetonian
later in 1988, when he was vetting for appointment to Dan Quayle's vacated
Senate seat, "I talked to some political people about it. I think you
could make a forthright account and statement and take your chances."
"There's probably not
a living Hoosier whose life has been scrutinized more thoroughly than
mine," he told the Star in 2004. "We live with the consequences
of our actions and that's a good thing."
Though Daniels reportedly
walked reporters in great detail through his record in 2004, a Daniels aide
didn't respond to an inquiry about the details last week.
