Rhode Island Income Tax Disclosure Bill Could Cause Trouble for Trump and Pence in 2020

The Associated Press is reporting that if a bill that is under consideration in the Rhode Island Legislature becomes law President Trump might be denied ballot access if he runs for re-election in 2020.

The AP reports:

AP/WPRI - The Rhode Island Senate has passed a bill that would require presidential and vice presidential candidates to file five years' worth of tax returns in order to appear on the state's ballots.

The Senate voted 33-3 to pass the measure. A House version has been held in a committee.

Senate spokesman Greg Pare says if the bill becomes law, President Donald Trump wouldn't appear on a future ballot unless he filed his returns.

Democratic Sen. Gayle Goldin, who sponsored the bill, did not explicitly mention Trump in vouching for the policy on the Senate floor. She did say that "this president" was the first since Richard Nixon to not voluntarily release his tax returns.

Goldin says the tax returns contain essential information about conflicts of interest that is not otherwise available to the public.

INDY REPUBLICAN did not think this would happen but we actually for once agree with a Rhode Island Democrat! This shocks us so much we can hardly finish our beer. But State Senator Gayle Goldin is absolutely right in insisting that presidential and vice presidential candidates disclose their tax returns. 

If laws like this wind up passing in more states they could cause issues for Vice President Pence. As we have pointed out on this blog previously here and here  Pence stated on his 2011 tax return that he and his wife Karen lived in Arlington, VA even though state law in Indiana requires him to have lived in Indiana for the five years preceding the 2012 election. So Pence should have been deemed ineligible to run for Governor in 2012, just like Evan Bayh should have been disqualified from running for Governor in 1988. 

Other issues that Pence may or should at least face if he runs for VP again or for President involves his having cast an absentee ballot in this years primary from the Governors Mansion even though he is no longer Governor. Take a look at what old Mikey tweeted as he was leaving Indiana to become Trumps Biatch Vice President:

Needless to say Pence’s casting a ballot from the Governors Mansion elicited some interesting commentary. Here are some of our favorites:

Also our mailbag had some interesting things to say about Mike Pence’s squatting at the Governors Mansion:

“WTF? He is no longer Governor? Does he intend to reside with Holcomb? Is he filing his taxes, getting his mail over there too. Can Daniels still vote form the mansion too? Haha. The VP of the US can’t get an outhouse somewhere to vote from? Did Bush try to vote from the Texas governors mansion?”

“So does Mike Pence “return” to the govs mansion whenever he wants when he comes to Indiana...it’s a real good idea that you actually have ACCESS to the residence you are voting from.”

“He also said while he filed taxes from his DC residence address as he filed as a “resident” of fishers to enroll his daughter at HSE when he “lived” at the unreported free house that he can continue to vote in Columbus where he didn’t “live” bc of his intent and the fishers house was for the “convenience of his family” what a bunch of crap!”

Other opinions of Pence from our readers include the following:

How long would Pence survive in a Star Trek episode?

“About as long as it takes for ensign Johnson to be turned into a styrofoam cube after beaming down to the surface and making a half ass attempt at protecting the captain.”

Are critics off base to say that Mike Pence’s gene pool needs a filter?

“Yes. It needs enhancement..not filtering ..they’re missing chromosomes! He’s missing the dna which gives someone balls & a backbone...but also the chromosome that allows one to read, write and snap out of a blissful state of sleep”

So you all next time. Have fun fellow Troublemakers!

Help Republicans Fighting Tariffs Today

Indy Republican is glad to see there are some Republicans out there fighting back against job killing tariffs. And standing for the principles of free trade and enterprise rather than going down the path of completely turning the GOP into a full blown socialist/communist front group. Which sadly too many Republicans like Mike Pence, Donald Trump and Putin Puppet Congressman Dana Rohrabacher are doing there best take us from being entrepreneurs and free workers to submissive vassals to a Nurse Ratchet State. We will write more in the future about the unfortunate turn from being the party of freedom and individualism to increasingly supporting communist dictators like Kim Jong-Un and Vladimir Putin. But we urge all of our readers to give your support to Republicans Fighting Tariffs. Help to reverse the Republican Parties slide towards economic facisim like that of Indiana’s Bill Oesterle and restore our commitment to capitalism and free market idealism of Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan. Go to https://terribletariffs.com/ to lend your voice to the fight against economic ruin.

Feds Give Green Light to Holcomb’s Workforce Group

Governor Eric Holcomb 

In March IR reported on Governor Eric Holcomb’s plan to organize a new workforce cabinet for the state of Indiana. In our post we mentioned how there were concerns that Indiana might lose out on $40 million plus in federal funding with the Governors new cabinet. Well the IBJ reported today that the federal government has granted the state a waiver to have our new workforce cabinet. The IBJ reports

A waiver granted last week will allow the state to continue receiving millions of dollars in federal funding for the job-training programs despite the changes Holcomb implemented.

Holcomb and Republican lawmakers overhauled the cabinet's membership this year. But the changes conflicted with federal guidelines, so Holcomb's office requested a waiver in March.

The 21-member Workforce Cabinet is a smaller group with more authority than the state's previous Workforce Innovation Council. Holcomb said it will better react to changes in the economy and meet the needs of employees and employers.

The waiver is approved for two years, starting July 1.

IR will keep an eye on this new cabinet that “High Tax” Holcomb has created and see what comes of it. 

$10,000 Buys You and Your Significant Other a Picture with Mike Pence

Last September we blogged about Vice President Pence’s habit of whoring himself out to fundraise for any mediocrity running with an “R” after there names  Back in May the Indianapolis Star reported on more of Pence’s pandering to the establishment GOP by charging couples $10,000 to have there picture taken with him.

Maureen Groppe and Ginger Rough wrote:

Want to cozy up to Vice President Mike Pence when he's in Indiana Friday?

Well, as they say, that's gonna cost you.

The goal of the event?

To raise serious cash — more than $500,000 — for a trio of Republican U.S. Senate hopefuls: Mike Braun of Indiana, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley and Ohio Congressman Jim Renacci.

Minimum buy-in? $2,700 per couple. And, basically, that just gets you in the door.

If you want to be where the real action is, you need to cough up even more dough.

Tier Two is know as the "Host Committee" level. That's a cool $10,000 per couple. And that will get you one photo with Pence and two attendees at the reception.

If you've really got extra cash to throw around, you can buy in at the highest level: the "Chairman Committee Roundtable." For a mere $25,000, you get one attendee at a roundtable discussion, one photo with Pence and four attendees at the reception.

$10,000 to have you and your dates picture taken with Mike Pence? No thanks. We wouldn’t pay a penny to have our picture taken with idiot boy Mikey!
