J&C Takes Daniels to Task on Ritz Election Comments

Today the Journal and Courier took Governor Mitch Daniels to task for his comments last week suggesting that there had been illegal activity by teachers in their fight to defeat State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett. Here's the ending of the their op-ed:
Last week’s comment was one wild swing from the governor — even if it’s true and he’s ready to prove it. (And ready to take the counter punches.) Right or wrong, teachers showed in November that they know how to handle themselves when they feel threatened. Calling their actions illegal is a good way to rile them again.

Not a smart move for a guy who said he was ready to set partisan politics aside and take the reins at Purdue.
