Soliday Twitter hacker
Citizen and Jerk
State Rep. Ed Soliday, R-Valparaiso, removed his Twitter account after calling local entrepreneur Don Brown stupid. Someone has re-opened the account to troll Soliday until he apologizes to Brown. It's a jerky thing to do ... while simultaneously brilliant.
Jane Henegar, Exec. Dir. ACLU of Indiana
Jane Henegar spoke out against the latest executive order on immigration, pointing out that despite small changes — the president's actions still constitute religious discrimination under a false guise of national security.
Ben Carson,HUD Secretary
If you can't tell the difference between immigrants who are leaving their homelands in search of a better life and slaves who were removed from their homes and forced into a life of hard labor and battery, then you deserve so much more than being called a jerk.
