March 31st, 2010 · 4 Comments

Shannon White Attacks David Tandy On Video

March 31st, 2010 · 2 Comments

What’s that sound? Shannon White attacking David Tandy because she was part of Dress for Success or whatever? Nice to see Tandy’s opponents talking about his Cordish mess, though.

March 30th, 2010 · 11 Comments

In 2008, Indiana businessman Greg Fischer famously said he was an open book. So we’re gonna hold him to that claim.
