IBA: Support Judicial Candidates for 2012

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

IndyBar’s Attorneys for an Independent Bench (“AIB”) political action committee is a great alternative to direct political contributions for those seeking to support judicial candidates in the 2012 elections for Marion Circuit and Superior Courts.

Chaired by former Indiana Supreme Court Justice Theodore Boehm, AIB was formed to receive contributions from those within the Indiana legal community wishing to support judicial candidates without regard to political affiliation.

“Judges have become vehicles for raising funds for political parties,” Justice Boehm remarked in his public comments upon his retirement from the bench. In creating AIB, it was the intention of the Indianapolis Bar Association to address such a concern while promoting public confidence in attorneys, judges and the justice system.

All contributions received by AIB, less minimal administrative costs, will distribute equally among all judicial candidates on the certified candidate list released by the Election Division of the Indiana Secretary of State following the May 2012 primary.

Voluntary contributions to the PAC are now being accepted and will continue to be until forty-five days prior to the November 6, 2012 general election. Checks should be made to Attorneys for an Independent Bench and sent to the Indianapolis Bar Association at 135 Pennsylvania Street, Ste. 1500, Indianapolis IN 46204, or donate online at www.indybar.org/aib. A complete list of all donors will be filed timely with the Marion County Election Board.•

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
