INDIANAPOLIS – It’s been one year since Tennessee Trey Hollingsworth announced his intentions to attempt to buy Indiana’s Ninth District. And since then, not only are Hoosiers well aware that Tennessee Trey isn’t one of them, but he’s made it pretty clear that he does not care about showing any Hoosier values either.
With today being the one year anniversary of his carpetbagging campaign, let’s take a walk down a memory lane that’s full of gaffes, dark money, and a simple refusal to release tax returns.
