Gary Welsh, died earlier today. According to published reports, he died by his own hand in a stairway in the building where he lived. Like many lawyers today, he had complained about poor legal business.
He wrote the blog Advance Indiana and was unafraid of unmasking corruption. Many of his friends had suggested that he be careful.
Gary Welsh, on the right, is pictured while he addresses the Commissioners during a 2012 Marion County election commission meeting. He represented me in a matter I had put before the Commission. I am pictured on the left of this photograph.
I had asked the Election Board if then Sen. Richard Lugar and his wife, Charlene, had voted illegally in Marion County because they have not lived at the home address on their registration for more than three decades. Gary won the case.
