Merritt Makes Apology to Hogsett During Debate

 

Monday night's third and final Indianapolis mayoral debate hosted by FOX 59 News included a discussion on crime, roads, economic development, and an apology.

At the third and final Indianapolis Mayoral debate, Republican Jim Merritt publicly apologized to Democratic incumbent Joe Hogsett over a campaign website that claimed Hogsett’s wages had been garnished in 2011 for failing to pay child support.

At the debate hosted by Fox 59 and the Indianapolis Westside Chamber of Commerce, Merritt told Hogsett he was sorry about the allegations made in the campaign website and later told the media he took full responsibility.

The Indy Star has reported the claim was not true and the website was taken down.

Merritt told reporters that as the candidate, he is responsible for the actions of his campaign and if elected Mayor he expects the voters to hold him accountable as well.
