Indiana ends public financing of campaigns!
I had nothing to do with this; it was a budget-cutting move by the GOP governor.
It had been very high on my todo list of lobbying/litigating, since I got interested in it in 1994. Since 1930, Indiana has been using a system of official graft where money from vanity license plates goes to the major political parties, with zip going to the smaller parties. Orginally whichever party was in power got it, more recently it's been a 50-50% split. The amounts were about a million and half $ last year. The end comes July 1. The state Dems are cutting staff and moving out of their fancy offices.
