Ind. Gov't. - Vanderburgh County Republican chairman tries to have councilwoman disbarred

The ILB has had a number of posts re Evansville City Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley, who recorded the State Board of Accounts auditors' exit interview about her city and then made it publicly available. The most recent ILB post was from August 5th and was headed: "Ind. Gov't. - More on 'Special prosecutor says Brinkerhoff-Riley did not violate law.'"

The City County Observer: "Evansville's True Watchdog!" asks today:

[Is it true that] Vanderburgh County Republican Party Chairman Wayne Parke quietly filed a complaint with the Indiana State Bar Association [sic.] with intention to have City Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley stripped of her license to practice law?…our “Statehouse Mole” tells us that Mr. Parke’s complaint has been summarily dismissed as being without merit?
Ordinarily to the ILB would have passed on this item...

The difference here is that the story includes a link to the complaint made to the Indianan Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission, along with many attachments. All of this information is of itself an attachment to a July 31st letter from the Disciplinary Commission to Ms. Brinkerhoff-Riley, advising her that the grievance had been filed and had been dismissed.
