Former sheriff shows double standard in remarks

John Espar

The ugly face of political corruption can be found in many forms in La Porte County. Regrettably, Councilman Mike Mollenhauer’s recent statement blindly defending criminally accused Councilman John Sullivan and former commissioner Dave Decker displays one such face of corruption.

Mollenhauer’s deceitful, dishonest and hypocritical statement seeks to defend his political friends with a personal attack upon the integrity of a prosecutor who dares to do his duty against the politically powerful. Mollenhauer’s conduct reflects an “above the law” and “protect your own at all costs” attitude that has plagued La Porte County politics for far too long.
