INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement after a second request for an investigation into Speaker Brian Bosma’s conduct was made to the House Ethics Committee in as many weeks.
“The need for a thorough investigation of Speaker Bosma’s conduct couldn’t be clearer. This is about politicians being held to account. The longer Governor Holcomb shrugs it off, the more it looks like he believes the rules don’t apply to his powerful political allies. Barring the use of outside counsel, it’s hard to see how the House Ethics Committee objectively investigates the man who appointed half its members. With Holcomb with his hands in his pockets and Senate leadership staying silent, this crisis of public confidence is slowly spiraling out of control.”
