Mayor Peterson of Indianapolis has ceded control of the new stadium and convention center to Mitch. You may remember that when Mayor Peterson announced his plan, it wouldn't require raising any taxes. That of course was something Mitch couldn't live with, and now we know why.
"Under the plan the mayor unveiled today, a seven member state building authority would oversee the construction project. The state would control the financing, and choose the bonding lawyers who will earn lucrative work."
Gee I wonder if Mitch knows any campaign contributors who happen to be lawyers looking for lucrative work? Best case scenario, Mitch is a control freak. Worst case he's holding public works projects hostage to pay back his friends.
