So when Jason’s partisanship is called out, he calls it ‘Absurd and Pathetic’
Myers has described the secretary of state as ‘a hit man for the Republican machine in Pierre.’
“The secretary of state is used as a party to advance the interest of the dominant party,” said Myers.
“Absolutely not — that’s absurd and pathetic. That’s just the sad attempt of publicity,” said Gant.
“And you know what, I don’t like bullies. So Gant is the big guy up in front of all the bullies,” said Myers.
“The law is the law and I can’t change it. Mr. Myers can’t change and I have to follow it. If he doesn’t agree with it, that’s his concern,” said Gant.
Jason has time and time again used his position as a REPUBLICAN to advance his party, he has made anybody who isn’t in the Republican party follow a separate set of rules, he has raised gobs of money for the state party, he has even went as far to purchase equipment from companies that have donated to the state party (E-Poll books) and has even endorsed candidates. Now if that isn’tÂ partisanship, not sure what is. This issue could have been easily accommodated, the AG could have went in front of a judge (in the absence of the law referring to Indy candidates) and asked for an exception for Myers and Hubbel, then instructed Gant to put them on the ballot. But instead, they must punish those who don’t ‘kiss the ring’ and make them go dig up attorneys. Gant and Jackley know who their bosses are, and it is not the citizens of this great state.
