State Senator David Niezgodski (D-South Bend) responds to IDVA lobbying scandal

INDIANAPOLIS – State Senator David Niezgodski (D-South Bend) responded to the news that former State Senator Allen Paul could face felony charges due to his unregistered lobbying efforts for the Indiana Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA).

“Ever since the first reports of financial mismanagement by the IDVA I have been disheartened by continuing instances of mishap with the agency,” Sen. Niezgodski said. “The allegation of Allen Paul’s unregistered lobbying is just another instance of our state being fiscally irresponsible and letting down Hoosier veterans.

“At the end of the day, helping our veterans must be the main goal, and I hope that we can weed out all misconduct that had taken root in the IDVA. My desire is that, going forward, the IDVA’s new director will make sure that the agency’s number one priority is helping our Hoosier veterans.”
