An Indiana GOP tracker sent to follow Rep Joe Donnelly, the Democratic nominee for Senate, instead followed a criminal court judge who feared that he was being stalked.
As first reported in the Indianapolis Star, 49-year old tracker Kurt Holland followed the car of Judge Jose Salinas, after a local Democratic picnic Saturday in the Indianapolis area. When the judge noticed a mysterious person was following him — for 16 miles — he pulled into a parking lot, briefly followed Holland’s car in order to get his license plate number, and called the police.
Salinas told TPM that as the county’s drug court judge, his duties do involve sentencing people to prison: “And you know what, we have to deal with this stuff all the time, people not liking what we do, people not liking our rulings.”
“I gotta be honest with you,” said Salinas. “For those 16 miles he was on me on the highway, and when I noticed him, the unknown factor was scary.”
