The Capital BuildingWhen readers ask, they receive! You charged me with asking Representatives Joe Donnelly and Brad Ellsworth about their recent vote against the federal hate crimes bill. While I talked to them about it that night, both of them wanted to make sure their reasons were heard by our community. To that end, both of them will be doing guest posts to! Congressman Donnelly's post will run on Wednesday; Congressman Ellsworth's will go up on Thursday. Be sure to check back so you can express yourself to the Representatives and hopefully dialogue with them a little bit.
