Indiana Wants Me
R. Dean Taylor

(police sirens}

Mmm mm-mmmm-mm
Mmm mm-mmmm-mm

Indiana wants me
Lord, I can’t go back there
Indiana wants me
Lord, I can’t go back there
I wish I had you to talk to

If a man ever needed dyin’, he did
No one had the right to say what he said about you
And it’s so cold and lonely here without you
Out there the law’s a-comin’
I’m scared and so tired of runnin’

Indiana wants me
Lord, I can’t go back there
Indiana wants me
Lord, I can’t go back there
I wish I had you to talk to

It hurts to see the man that I’ve become
And to know I’ll never see the morning sun shine on the land
I’ll never see your smilin’ face or touch your hand
If just once more I could see
You, our home, and our little baby

Indiana wants me
Lord, I can’t go back there
Indiana wants me
Lord, I can’t go back there
{police sirens}
I wish I had you to talk to

I hope this letter finds its way to you
Forgive me, Love, for the shame I put you through and all the tears
Hang on, Love, to the memories of those happy years
Red lights are flashin’ around me
Yeah, Love, it looks like they found me

Indiana wants me
Lord, I can’t go back there
Indiana wants me
Lord, I can’t go back there
I wish I had you to talk to

Indiana wants me (this is the police, you are surrounded)
Lord, I can’t go back there (give yourself up)
Indiana wants me (this is the police, give yourself up)
Lord, I can’t go back there (you are surrounded)

{shoot-out sound effects}

ANOTHER example if what happens to a previously “good” guy who has been in that cesspool of DC FAR too long.

Wow! I’m shocked!

No, not at the story. At the headline—I had to read 2 paragraphs or so before I found out this guy is a REPUBLICAN!

Usually on these ‘neener, neener’ type announcements, the affiliation is emblazoned across the headline for Republicans, NEVER for Democrats.

Of course, this IS Fox reporting, so that makes a difference.

Another one bites the dust—TEA party people want ALL the bad’uns out, so who’s going to take his place? Any good conservatives in those parts to step up?

If this guy is resigning because of a scandal, why is Charlie Rangel, who is vastly more corrupt, with far bigger scandals, still sitting in the congress?

So he won the primary only to resign? That is low.

survived a contested primary two weeks ago.

Why did this a**hole wait until after his primary? He needs a good public flogging.

Thought it was probably a Republican since Dims rarely resign over a little playing around, even if it’s a gay rep and a House page.

Just go away. All you so-called conservative republicans that have skeletons in your closet which will embarrass the conservative movement - all of you - just pack your crap and leave asap. We do not need any distractions as we are trying to save our country.

A resignation of the candidacy would be filled by a caucus of Republican precinct per IC 3-13-1-4.

IC 3-13-1-4
United States Representatives
Sec. 4. A candidate vacancy for United States Representative shall be filled by a caucus comprised by the precinct committeemen of the political party whose precincts are within the congressional district. As added by P.L.5-1986, SEC.9.

Party leaders will most likely appoint a successor to run, probably the opposing candidate, unless the candidate was too badly damaged in the primary.

Why can’t these guys keep it in their pants? You want to find someone else, get a divorce and move on.

Here are the primary results: I don’t know how they’ll handle this but Bob Thomas, the second place finisher, is probably furious over this.

Gregory (Greg) Dickman 2126
Mark Edward Souder 38428
Bob Thomas 27062
Phillip J. (Phil) Troyer 12848
