Indianapolis, IND – At a press conference in front of the Statehouse today, Mike Claytor laid out his plan to reverse the trend of ethical lapses we have seen in state government lately.
“When Republican Governor Robert Orr appointed me as the Deputy Director of the State Board of Accounts, it was my job to work with local prosecutors on white-collar crime investigations,” said Claytor. “Together we sought to correct the breaches in ethical standards in state and local government in Indiana. Now we see flagrant actions that violate any reasonable standards of ethical conduct. What good are ethics commissions or Inspectors General that whitewash those breaches and impose minimal or no punishment?”
