FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana lawmaker who drew criticism for calling the Girl Scouts a radical group that promotes abortions and homosexuality has received only one campaign contribution in the months since that controversy.
The Journal Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/JuPIjM ) Rep. Bob Morris' latest campaign finance report shows that between Jan. 1 and April 13 the Fort Wayne Republican raised $5,000 in a single donation from the Northeast Indiana PAC for Better Government.
Morris now has about $19,000 on hand. He's facing Democrat Lee Jordan in the fall but Indiana's online campaign finance database had not yet posted Jordan's latest report.
Morris apologized for the tone of his February accusations against the Girl Scouts, but said he stands by his criticism of the national group.
The Girl Scouts have flatly denied Morris' charges.
