Commentary: A little perspective on sex abuse charges

By Janet Williams The StatehouseFile.com Every day we turn on the news or pick up a paper to hear or read about another man in a position of power or authority who abused that power by harassing or assaulting women over whom they had control.

Commentary: Tide will come here, too

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – So, Matt Lauer and, perhaps, Garrison Keillor are the latest to be washed away by an historic tidal shift. The now former host of NBC’s “Today” and the former host of public broadcasting’s “Prairie Home Companion” likely won’t be the last to go. Not much is known, as I […]

Commentary: The rich want more and Moore

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – The trolls grew silent. When I first wrote about Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate – and accused child molester – Roy Moore’s assaults on both women and decency, I heard from a lot of self-proclaimed conservatives asking “what-abouts.” What about Bill Clinton? What about former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, […]

Commentary: Right, wrong and the women in our lives

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – It’s wrong regardless of who does it. Groping a woman against her will or without her knowledge is wrong whether a Republican or a Democrat does it. The same goes for pressuring her to have sex if she doesn’t want to or trying to force oneself on her. It […]

Commentary: Trump, Moore and their God-fearing enablers

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Maybe Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K. should run for public office. If they did, chances are they’d be able to avoid paying the price for their predatory sexual practices. They’d be able to skip away, consequence-free, like President Donald Trump and, possibly, Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate […]

Pence meets with small business owners seeking lower taxes

By Adrianna Pitrelli TheStatehouseFile.com PLAINFIELD, Ind. — Jennifer Wiese’s passion to feed her family of six tasty, gluten-free treats turned into a small business in 2010. Now, seven years later, the Noblesville-based business sells its products in 27 states. “You’re selling your products in half the country?” Vice President Mike Pence asked Wiese at a […]

Commentary: Telegram for the president

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Voters sent a message Tuesday. They sent it to President Donald Trump, who has frittered away his first 10 months in office engaging in one pointless and avoidable quarrel after another. And they sent it to the Republicans in Congress, in governors’ offices and in Statehouses across the land […]

Commentary: Trump, as the walls start to close

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – The dominoes have begun to fall. The news that two campaign aides for President Donald Trump had been indicted and that another had entered a guilty plea – along with an agreement to cooperate with investigators – had the feel of the first shots fired in what’s likely to […]

Commentary: Hissy fits and smoke screens aren’t a defense strategy

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – By now, Russian leader Vladimir Putin must be convinced we Americans are a nation of morons. The evidence that Putin sought to influence the 2016 presidential election is compelling. That fact ought to demand a strong response, one asserting our determination to conduct our own affairs. Instead, we have […]

Mother urges participation in Drug Take Back Day

By Adrianna Pitrelli TheStatehouseFile.com INDIANAPOLIS — Holding a brown, cylinder bottle, Shadonna Mills walks into the Indiana Government Center eager to get rid of what’s inside. “Twenty-eight pills,” she said, shaking her head. “Twenty-eight pills and he only needed 13.” Mills’ son, Gerry, had his wisdom teeth removed — a surgery about 3.5 million people […]
