To Be Expected...

As we might expect, the American Family Association is all twisted up over Senator Bayh's position on the FMA. Or the Marriage Protection Act, as Mr. Wildmon is wont to call it. Mr. Wildmon remains clueless about any number of...Read More

Filed by Chris Douglas | May 23, 2006 | 4:24 PM | comments

I think its important that Senator Evan Bayh has met with bloggers (Bilerico, Advance Indiana, et al.) The meeting was a great idea, and I hope that more such meetings occur with other candidates and office holders. Lots of considered...Read More

Five Questions for Congresswoman Julia Carson

Filed by Bil Browning | May 01, 2006 | 4:13 PM | comments

After a few negative posts on bilerico.com about the Kris Kiser for Congress campaign, I thought it appropriate that we veer back towards what bilerico.com readers are more interested in - the issues. As background, Kiser, an openly gay man, is running against Democratic incumbent Julia Carson. Carson is a gay-friendly politician who's held the seat in Congress for several years. This primary race is being watched closely by the Indianapolis LGBT community. I submitted five questions to both candidate's campaigns. Here are the answers returned by Representative Julia Carson. (See Five Questions for Congressional Candidate Kris Kiser for Kiser's answers.) Remember folks, bilerico.com is the only place where you can read detailed statements from the candidates on the issues you care about. We'll continue our candidate interviews and coverage of the elections as the year goes on.Read More
