Someone Always Ruins the Fun...
We were going to try to stay non-political today and just have a good time at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Unfortunately, Melina Kennedy, Democratic candidate for prosecutor, couldn’t leave politics out of what was supposed to be a good time for everyone.
The rules for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade run by the Indy Sports Foundation clearly state that this is a non-partisan parade. No candidates are allowed to distribute campaign materials or display camapign signage. The parade insists upon this to remain legally compliant with their IRS group registration.
Mrs. Kennedy must have decided she was above the rules because she not only walked in the parade, but had people walking with Melina Kennedy for Prosecutor stickers. Some might think this sounds like a small thing. But the role of Prosecutor is to prosecute those who choose not to follow the law. Does Melina Kennedy sound like the type of person that should be given that responsibility?
UPDATE: We’ve posted a few pictures that a FIN field operative was able to snap of Melina’s crew breaking the rules at the parade.
