    An Indiana state lawmaker is accused of impersonating a police officer to find cocaine, driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest, according to prosecutors.

    Rep. Dan Forestal, a Democrat who was elected to the state House in 2012, approached a couple outside their Indianapolis home Saturday night and told them: “I’m a legit officer doing a drug bust and today is the last day before the Feds descend and start kicking in doors,” court documents said.

    He then showed them a badge with a silver chain and asked them to tell him where the “people selling drugs” lived.

    Earlier in the evening, Forestal, 36, had been at a bar telling customers he was a firefighter, and asking them where he could buy “party favors” like cocaine, a bartender told investigators, according to an affidavit filed in Marion Superior Court on Wednesday.

    I do believe that Indiana is the Florida of the Midwest.

     

    All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
