"All Politics are Local"

There are a number of Dummocrats who have thrown their hats into the race for St. Joseph Cty., IN, Sheriff, including:
Mike Miller for Sheriff: A Change Can Make A Difference. (no web site I can find)
and
John Botich .

St. Joseph County and the cities of South Bend and Mishawaka have ordinances limiting political signage. They may go up at the most 45 days before an election, and must come down within a week after the election. Both of these guys have had ubiquitous signs of varying size (some 4'x8' or larger) up in the county for anywhere from a few weeks to several months, well in advance of the May primaries. The county has apparently issued a statement that, due to 1st Amendment concerns, they will not enforce the laws (try to bend them if you're a Republican). Yet, the laws are still in place; with no indication of forthcoming repeal by the County Council.
So, here are two guys who wish to be at the top of the law enforcement heap in this county, violating existing law. The irony of their lack of ethics seems to be lost on them.

A related issue is Jack Jordan, running for the (R) slot in the U.S. Congressional race. He is apparently pouring vast sums of personal cash into a primary race against Jackie Walorski, who is the very embodiment of what a Citizen-Legislator should be (my old friend Tony Zirkle is also in the race). To that end, Jacko has put up actual billboards throughout the 2nd District, some I know to be in violation of local ordinance. Way to go, Jack. Thanks for helping out the cause.
Jack, BTW, came out of the box attacking Ms. Walorski as a "politician" and touting himself as a "citizen candidate"; somehow missing the blindingly obvious fact that once you enter a political race, you are a politician, baby.
Jack's ads continue to be at a saturation level, annoyingly negative about someone I personally know to be a fine citizen and an exemplary Representative, and utterly devoid of issues and platform. Yee-hah.
