Jeremy Mull Needs to Be The Next Clark Co. Prosecutor


Day in and day out chief deputy prosecutor Jeremy Mull (R) has been the down in the trenches, doing the hard work, and has been the face of the prosecutors office for several years now. It is time to give him the title of Clark Co. prosecutor. A couple of months back we posted a glowing recommendation from Co. Commissioner Rick Stephenson on Jeremy's candidacy and in Mr. Mull's own words his background, experience, and qualifications for the job. I encourage everyone to check it out   CLICK HERE....

 Nothing against his opponent Bob Bottorff (D) who was doing an excellent job in his short stint as local Democratic chair, but Mr. Mull's experience and impressive resume' make him the man for the job, hands down. In the words of one local attorney (paraphrased) Mr. Mull is a better litigator while Mr. Bottoroff is more of a politician...The choice is clear Jeremy Mull for Clark Co. prosecutor....

The BatBlog feels Mr. Mull will win the Nov.4 race rather easily as his record, experience, and background make him stand out from his opponent...

Be sure to Vote !!!

Breaking Story....Clark Co. Probation Office Under Investigation ???
*************************************************************
  It appears that some of the rumors about the Clark Co. probation office may be coming true. Several sources have informed the BatBlog that there is a story(s) in the works from local news agencies about Indiana State police investigating the probation office and several different employees. It appears as rumored police investigators are going over time sheets and other matters including alleged probation department employees doing political work (erecting signs) during work hours and a lack of supervisional control by several local judges over said employees. The BatBlog has names of the judges and employees involved in the investigation but will not release them until a more appropriate time. While we will still treat this as a rumor, the BatBlog feels something is coming down so watch the headlines and remember where you heard it first on the "award winning" BatBlog...

Will this be ANOTHER black eye on the Clark Co.judicial and correctional systems ??? only time will tell....Stay tuned and tell your friends about the BatBlog and as always "stay vigilant my friends"...


**********************Breaking News Spainhour Cleared***********
Mac Spainhour independant candidate for Clark Co, sheriff was cleared by the Clark Co. election board today by a vote of 3-0 on charges filed last week. Spainhour  is in compliance as reported earlier by the BatBlog.....

Clark Co. Sheriff's Race Heating Up .....

 
 With the Clark Co. sheriff's race less than two weeks away, things are starting to heat up. This appears to be the race that has drawn the most interest and the most passionate supporters for the individual candidates. While the candidates have been most civil in their face to face "greet the candidates" forums, behind the scenes the accusations and claims have been flying hot and heavy. A lot of people blame each candidates supporters for the "dirty politics" claim and not the candidates themselves. The BatBlog thinks we should be careful in giving the candidates a pass on being clean, because there appears to be a lot of behind the scene manipulations by all the campaigns.

  We're pretty sure (R) Jamey Noel didn't turn himself in on the campaign headquarters/ New Chapel EMS controversy, and (I) Mac Spainhour's alleged campaign funding mistakes supposedly was reported by someone connected to a Noel family member. We're also pretty sure (D) Brian Meyer didn't say he would bring back former sheriff Danny Rodden after he is elected, as has been rumored. Yeah there's a lot of rumors and innuendos flying and it would be naive to think the candidates weren't at least aware if not directly involved in these  political shenanigans. The candidates might all smile and praise each other publicly, but this is politics and this is Clark Co....What do you think ???

 The BatBlog still strongly supports Mac Spainhour, Mac seems just like a stand up guy with no ties to the current sheriff's dept., which is truly a mess .When you consider the Rodden disgrace and the Adam's embarrassment and the serious alleged drug problems in the Clark Co. jail, it's time for new leadership away from the current dept. And while Jamey Noel has a shiny resume', his memory seems to be conveniently vague at times when it is necessary. He has garnered the reputation as a political wheeler dealer in his role as GOP chair, who has become considered somewhat of a  power broker in each of his many pursuits. Meyer is just too closely aligned with Rodden and the department.

We do think it will be a close race ....the BatBlog gives a slight edge to Noel going into the last couple of weeks. Mainly because Spainhour and Meyer will split the Democratic vote. We believe it will be close between Spainhour and Noel with Meyer trailing the field. We will give a final prediction next week.

Thanks to everyone for the many, some very detailed comments and predictions. I would caution everyone to keep their comments away from the candidates personal lives, while character issues are important let's not forget innocent family members....

The BatBlog Endorses Perry McCall for Clark Co. Auditor


The BatBlog feels there needs to be a shakeup in the Clark Co. Auditor's office. Local attorney and political newcomer Perry McCall (D) faces a tough challenge facing incumbent Monty Snelling (R). Snelling was part of the Co. Council that put the county in deep financial problems and we didn't feel like he handled a threatened lawsuit against the City of Jeffersonville professionally. Never the less Snelling being the incumbent probably has an edge on Mc Call...but the BatBlog feels Mr. Mc Call's background and experience as an attorney makes him a good choice for Auditor and endorses and supports his candidacy.

To see Mr. McCall's ideas, qualifications and why he's the best man for the job CLICK HERE

Which Is It Jamey ??? Noel Changes His Answer....


Seems like Rep. sheriff candidate Jamey Noel forgot about his announcement of his candidacy or at least where he made it. Reversing course Noel told the News/Tribune that actually there were political events held at the New Chapel EMS/GOP headquarters in 2013 including his announcement he was running for Clark Co. sheriff. This is contrary to what he told the N/T earlier. Anything else you forget Mr. Noel ??? or should we ask your attorney ???

 Possibly just a oversight but the famous words seem to apply here "Initially it appears not to pass the smell test"...We agree....
