Pence the Parasite sticks Indiana with $20 million tab....

Another parasitical GOP welfare scumbag, but on a much, much larger scale.

In a statement, Pence's older brother Greg Pence — who was president of Kiel Bros. when it went bankrupt and is now running for Congress as a Republican — distanced himself from the cleanup costs.
Quote:
In the immediate aftermath of the bankruptcy, the state sought about $8.4 million from the company for cleanup and fines. After a new Republican governor, Mitch Daniels, assumed office in 2005, the state dropped that claim , which had been filed under Daniels' Democratic predecessor, Gov. Joe Kernan.

The justification for the change is a matter of debate. Citing the complexities of bankruptcy law, experts said there was no guarantee a judge would approve Indiana's claim.

Greg Pence wasn't out of work for long. Within months, Daniels appointed him deputy commissioner of the Department of Environmental Management, the same agency fighting Kiel Bros. in court.
Yup, the rules really are different for the rich and politically connected. Not only are we going to let you off the hook for millions of dollars in DOCUMENTED environmental damage, we're going to put you IN CHARGE of the very agency responsible for cleaning up your mess.

Republicans are just lying crooks. Pence’s company privatized the profit and socialized the environmental damage costs. These people are the real “takers”. And then Pence’s brother is appointed to Indiana’s Environmental Department ? You can’t be gay in Indiana but a crook who destroys the environment is welcomed with open arms. Go figure.
