Indiana's Constitution does not confer upon Lt Gov role of insurance against policies

Hamilton County preacher Micah Beckwith [FN1] wants to be the GOP nominee for IN Lt Gov. In a 20-sec YouTube video, he looks into the camera & says he’ll be “an insurance policy against the woke mob.” [FN2] His target audience: delegates to the GOP State convention. [FN3] 1/11

Beckwith recruited people 2 B on the May 7 primary ballot as delegates because those delegates name the party’s nominee for Lt Gov. But Beckwith’s run for Lt Gov is based on falsehoods & each day brings new embellishments. [FN4] Context is important. 2/11

Beckwith describes himself as a “constitutionalist.” [FN5] In the video, he says he will be an “insurance policy.” [FN6] The office of IN Lt Gov is created by Constitution [FN7] & neither it nor any statute confers such a role upon IN’s Lt Gov. The video is scary. 3/11

Beckwith blasts “threats” against “our democracy.” That hardly rings true from a person who is skirting voters by being “‘laser-focused’ on delegates” to the convention. [FN8] The worst is Beckwith’s vision [FN9] & how Indiana should be like Texas & Florida. [FN10] 4/11

We already are. Indiana is down there w/other States w/complete bans on abortions When med school students in OB-GYN consider residency programs. [FN11] Stated differently, doctors who want to provide patients w/the best care possible do not want to risk prison 5/11

especially when the laws carrying such penalties are written by people who demean science as they pander to people who lack critical thinking skills. Docs will go to a blue State and leave Indiana behind. People will die in greater numbers. 6/11
