INDIANAPOLIS - The Democratic candidate for Indiana auditor says he would work to crack down on public corruption if elected in November.
Mike Claytor said Tuesday that ethics "have left the building," motioning toward the Indiana Statehouse. He cited a series of high-profile ethics troubles which have exposed loopholes in the state's laws.
Republican former state schools Superintendent Tony Bennett was fined $5,000 for campaigning with state resources in July, GOP House Speaker Pro Tem Eric Turner was cleared of technical wrongdoing by a House ethics panel and a former state highway official was determined to toe the line with land deals involving his family.
In each case, ethics watchdogs have faulted Indiana's law as being insufficient.
Claytor is running against Republican Auditor Suzanne Crouch.
