“And Chose to Ignore 30 Stacks”
When “The Times” didn’t move on material that mentioned 30 stacks and tall timber it was over. “What’s tall timber?” Some woman who was running for State Representative asked me.
1. Dean White --- Billionaire
2. Former Governor Mitch Daniels --- currently President of Purdue University
3. Joe Allegretti --- Lawyer for City of Hammond and East Chicago, you feel me
4. Former Mayor Tom McDermott, Sr of Hammond, Indiana
Lean Forward for This One
In a meeting with “The Times” Representative, the evitable came to fruition and something that Street had forgotten… Like a couple of months ago. Marc Chase had written a 4 or 5-part series on Dean White and Super Pac. White gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Republican candidates on the state and national level.
“Marc Chase already wrote about that”. This particular tells me the evitable. That’s War and Peace.”
“The 5-part series in the paper that Marc Chase wrote didn’t have these 30 stacks.” Street barked.
This was like six weeks ago, and the story never was printed about the 30 stacks and the pardon for Mayor Tom McDermott, Jr’s son.
