Hoosier Favorite State That's Happy to Break the Rules for Ya...?

McCain gets some assistance from the corrupt wankstains that call themselves the Republican Party of Indiana:
Now, I'm originally from the 4th District, so curiosity led me to check out who had made it [onto the primary ballot] (and by how much) in my old stomping ground. To my surprise, I noticed that John McCain -- the presumptive front-runner for the GOP nomination -- was just a little short in a few districts, including my precious 4th, despite the fact that Attorney General Steve Carter had already turned in their petitions. I made a few phone calls, and one by one I found out that the McCain camp had got the job done across the state.

Except in the 4th District.

In the 4th District, they are short.

By my latest count, they turned in 496 signatures for the 4th, and the latest IED report for this morning shows them with only 491.

So this afternoon, I filed a challenge with the Secretary of State's office to keep John McCain off of the ballot.

…The DNC responded to my challenge in a release a short while ago, but the key part of it is this:
Despite the fact that the McCain campaign clearly failed to qualify for the ballot, Republican Attorney General Steve Carter and Republican Secretary of State Todd Rokita (who recently endorsed McCain) rubberstamped it anyway, trying to sneak McCain onto the ballot. Clearly, the Republican Culture of Corruption is alive and well within the McCain campaign.
A culture of corruption or a culture of incompetence, the fact remains that Hoosiers expect more from their officials, and I have no doubt McCain expected more from Mitch and the gang.
Normally I expect more from Indiana's elected officials. But under "The Blade's" regime, I expect nothing but honking piles of shite. That's what happens when your state is full of senseless morons who decide to elect one of Bush's minions as governor. Nothing but shite and McCain love.

Which I realize is fairly redundant.
