Dick Lugar: A 'Lifelong' Resident of Indiana (If He Died 35 Years Ago)

Fact: Dick Lugar, a US Senator representing the state of Indiana, calls himself a "lifelong Hoosier."

Fact: Dick Lugar has not lived in Indiana for 35 years.

Fact: The US Constitution clearly states that a senator must be "an Inhabitant" of the state he represents.

Fact: "Inhabitant" means "one that occupies a particular place regularly, routinely, or for a period of time."

Fact: Lugar has been ruled ineligible to vote in his so-called home precinct because he failed to meet residency requirements.

Fact: Despite the fact he's lived in Virginia for decades, Lugar will appear on the Indiana primary ballot in May.

Fact-based Opinion: This is yet another example of how We, the People are getting misrepresented and screwed.
