Harper responds to Republican endorsement of Bosma intimidation tactics

Indiana Democratic Secretary of State Candidate Jim Harper released the following comments in response to the Republican statement of support for Speaker Brian Bosma’s attempt to silence and intimidate a former intern:

“Speaker Bosma’s attempt to track down a former intern and then threaten to drag her reputation through the mud is unfitting behavior for the top legislative leader in our state let alone any employer or leader.

“Then, Republican candidates across the state dug themselves even deeper by sidling up to him, and using their position to attack the press after efforts to silence and intimidate a woman who had not worked for the legislature for 26 years were publicly reported.

“Our statehouse needs a fresh perspective and one comprised of officials who act in a manner that befits their offices. This is just another example of how years of one party rule has led to Republicans prioritizing their own power over policy and putting themselves before Hoosiers.”
