The Turn Around Time
Mayor Tom McDermott, Jr was elected Mayor of Hammond, Indiana. This after going from a Republicans like his father, Tom McDermott, Sr., to a new Democrat. This was after dinner with Bob Stiglich, the Chairman of the Lake County Democratic Party and Lake County Sheriff (2004 thru 2005) 34 years old, his father and billionaire along with Attorney Joe Allegetti dropped $30, 000 dollars to Mitch Daniels Campaign Fund in 2004. Early part of 2005, Aaron McDermott had his pardon, you feel me?
This one was shot thru the grease gun, and Keith Cooper can’t get a pardon from Governor Mike Pence. White guy cops a pardon, but black guy doesn’t.
Politics Trumps All
Governor Mike Pence fears pardoning a black guy before November can bite him in the ass with his base, code for whites. And especially now that he is running as Vice President along with Donald Trump for President 2016!!! The life of Keith Cooper takes a back seat to the 2016 President Election, Trump vs Clintion. Black Lives doesn’t matter if you ask this writer.
