IS IT TRUE? January 19, 2012

IS IT TRUE former Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel has not lost his appetite for political activity?…that the Old Boss has now formed a political action committee that goes by the name of “Weinzapfel for Indiana” that was registered as a PAC on December 29, 2011 just two days before he handed the keys to the third floor office to Mayor Lloyd Winnecke?…that the Treasurer for the “Weinzapfel for Indiana” PAC is none other than the former Chief of Staff for the Weinzapfel Administration Rose Young?…that the CCO has been advised that the coffers of a campaign can transfer money to the coffers of a PAC with little or no trouble?…that with an organization known as the “Weinzapfel for Mayor” registered as a campaign that is holding nearly $800,000 that one may speculate that the OLD BOSS may transfer his entire war chest to his PAC and hire himself to run this one man think tank at a pretty high salary?…that at least one person associated with the City County Observer predicted that the OLD BOSS would find a NEW WAY to personally benefit from the substantial funds held in the “Weinzapfel for Mayor” campaign fund?…that this little SNEGAL (sneaky but legal) action will be quite interesting to watch unfold?…that you can verify the existence of this new PAC on the following link?

IS IT TRUE that on December 30, 2011 while still serving as the Mayor of Evansville and only 48 hours after trying to jam a McCurdy contract extension through the Evansville Redevelopment Commission that then Mayor Weinzapfel in one of his very last acts in office transferred $505,526.25 from the “Weinzapfel for Mayor” campaign fund into the newly registered “Weinzapfel for Indiana” Political Action Committee (PAC)?…that it will be most interesting next year to see just what kind of a salary that the top guy in a think tank of one pays himself?

IS IT TRUE that the Vanderburgh County Council didn’t directly include funds in their 2012 Budget so they can join the City of Evansville to pay for a much needed Information Technology Assessment Audit? …we are pleased that the City of Evansville directly put funds for this Audit in their 2012 Budget? ….we join 5th Ward City Councilmen and Budget Chairmen, John Friend-CPA call for this City of Evansville and Vanderburgh County funded department begin to do a long overdue and detailed financial assessment of this little known but important publically funded department? …we now are awaiting to see if the past Budget Chairmen and newly elected President of the Vanderburgh County Council, James Raben shall put the money on the table so this extremely important Assessment Audit can begin?

IS IT TRUE that it’s time for the Indiana State Board of Accounts to send their annual Audit Survey Questioners to each Evansville City Council members so they can express their option concerning the financial decisions and activities of the prior city administration?…that we can’t wait to get a copy of their responses?

IS IT TRUE that the real costs for the City of Evansville to do a recently announced “Satellite Water Reading” program will not be $51 million dollars but $60 million dollars?…we have been told not to care because this program shall not cost the City of Evansville taxpayers one red cent?

IS IT TRUE that it’s for the new appointed Evansville Fire Chief to review the ridiculous system wide policy that forces the emergency alarm warning system bells to be heard at all fire houses day and night? …we wonder how you would react being awakened by these loud warning alarms 24-7 even if the fire emergency don’t affect your area?

IS IT TRUE that the extremely popular J. D. Strouth is considering a run for the Vanderburgh County Clerk’s office as a Republican?


  1. Very interesting investigative reporting by the CCO. The Demo lapdog C&P liked to the 2011 year end Weinzapfel for Mayor financial disclosure form, but ignored the 2 transfers on December 30, 2011 totaling more than $ 1/2 million to the this new Weinzapfel for Indiana PAC.

    Will Treasurer Young provide the CCO with the total amount held by this new PAC? What can the money be used for? Who makes the decisions?

  2. Weinzapfel gives one more single finger salute to the good people of Evansville!!!!! Would someone please put this crook behind bars!!!

    • I keep thinking the same thing. Go to jail. Go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $800,000.00.

  3. Evansville’s newest US citizen seems to take particular delight in provoking Sen. Vaneta Becker. (political cartoon, C&P, 1-19-12)

    What a pity that Evansville’s newly minted United States citizen, James Macleod, cartoonist for the Courier&Press, has so little respect for that flag that was dug out of the rubble of the World Trade Center, dusted off, and re erected as a sign of American solidarity against the enemies of this country.

    Macleod does not seem to be cut from the same cloth as the Scots who were active in the formation of the United States of America.

    To think one could have lived here for twelve years and not gained more of a feeling for what really motivates the natives must be laid off to the insular nature of academia.

    Should Macleod doubt that public motivation I would suggest he and his employer, the University of Evansville, hire Roseanne Barr to sing the National Anthem at the next UE basketball game at the Ford Center.

    Give a listen, you will be so proud:

    I guess she felt grabbing her crotch and spitting was the icing on her great performance.

    She should be Persona Non Grata where ever she goes, but that has not been the case because of attitudes like James Macleod’s.

    One of these days I would like to go visit Patrick Henry’s house.

  4. Run for office four times and lose all four and he’s extremely popular. With who, the democrat he decides to run against.

    • Considering the fact that Colonel Sanders failed 1,009 times before being successful, I’d say he’s still got 1,005 times left which isn’t too bad by my count. Now if he goes out and does nothing but attack other candidates then he probably won’t win, unless he changes to Mainstream Democrat of course.
