Fire up the machine "Julia Carson's grandson to run for council"


U.S. Rep. Julia Carson's grandson has declared his candidacy for the City-County Council seat vacated on Saturday by Patrice Abduallah.

Andre D. Carson filed paperwork with the clerk's office on Monday. On his organization statement, Carson listed as his secretary a frequent poster on local blog sites, Wilson Allen.

Abduallah resigned the District 15 seat after admitting that the address he put on his candidate form was just outside his district. The deadline for filing as a candidate is Friday. Democratic party precinct captains are expected to choose a new council member in a caucus vote on Aug. 28. So far, Carson is the only declared candidate.

He could not be immediately reached for comment.

Several of us bloggers stated that this would be the choice, and how the heavy hand came down. Anyone care to check where he lives, and for how long? Got a camera handy?

Thoughts?

Wilson has been involved for a very long time......the now disbanded DUV's mailing list was Wilson's home address. The chairperson of that group was Julia and Drummer as the Treasurer. Interestingly, their daytime contact number- as listed on their Statement of Organization- was the Center Township Trustee's office. And I am sure(wink, wink) that they never took any of their P.A.C. calls while at work.

Did someone say he worked at, or currently works with the State Excise police?

We have a couple of moles over there, let's see what we can find out. IC just needs to know if that's the case, before making a call.

Why isn't the FBI involved in this? Are they on the take too?

he lives in fall creek place, near 25th.

yes, he was an excise cop in Lafayette, then went to homeland security.

yes, I know him somewhat personally, and he is a much better candidate than you give him credit for. While I hate having Julia as my rep, I wouldn't mind him on the council, even though he isn't my first choice.

I have met Andre Carson. He doesn't hate white people and doesn't deserve all the bad rap. He is a very nice guy. You should get to know him before making him out to be a crooked politician. If he runs I will give him serious consideration.
