IPSE Make Up or Break Up? #1: Carl Brizzi And Tom John

OBSERVATION:  Just to shake things up a bit we are introducing a new series for your reading pleasure. Make Up or Break Up.  Make Up or Break Up  (MUBU) will ask the burning question we all think about after hearing about political dust ups made public between our various public officials "Will they ever get back together?".  Now you too can have the power and influence of Dr. Phil. All you need to do is cast your vote using the agree/disagree buttons at the bottom of each posts if you believe there will be any reconciliation between the selected individuals.

If you think our political couple will start over press "agree". If you think that things are forever broken then press "disagree".  Remember the power is in your hands. Now its time for you to be the Cupid in someone's political life!

  2. Tom John LOVES Brizzi. He's exactly the type of poliican John likes. It's just that the scandals have become so numerous, that Brizzi is toxic to all. John and the county GOP are just trying to save face.

    I also heard a caller (On Brizzi's WIBC radio show) thank Brizzi for staying in office because "it says a lot about your character." Well, it certainly does say a lot about his character. Dignity for sale for a $3,000 yearly pension!

  3. I think the real question everyone is asking is "Will Buffie ever forgive Tom?"

  4. nope anon 7:33,

    I want to know how strong Tom's current marriage is after seeing his wife Christina Trexler in a gay bar about a month ago making out with another woman.

  6. come on guys. i'm no fan of Tom John however exposing his personal relationship crosses the line.

  7. beg to differ with you Hector.

    All that you are reading here is the culimation of 1000 chickens coming home to roost. It was Tom John that leaked the news that Mike Murphy was having an affiar with a certain IceMiller attorney. It was Tom John who made sure others knew about Brizzi questionable employee relations with his staffers. It was Tom who fed the rumor mills about Jen Wagner's marriage. He made sure his former busom buddy Glen Murphy was thrown under the bus after they had a dispute concerning some contract work. Liz Karlson and Bart McAtee were his most recent targets. The good thing is that he wasn't always successful. He failed at personal smear campaign against Mike Speedy and Scott Schneider. Bottom line the guy subscribe to the strategy that in order to control someone you need leverage. If he can't dig it up he manufactures it. He's stated numerous times: I don't care if its true. Is it believable?

    This is the Tom John everyone knows. Am I right Tommy boy?

    ps: Let's get those chickens fed pronto!

  8. hector,

    Don't forget the job he tried to do on Paul Ogden using is chubby buddy Abdul Hakim Shabazz.

  9. The county GOP seems much more cutthroat ever since Goldsmith took over and forced moderates like Hudnut out of the state. It's sad that Tom John decided to continue that tradition.

  10. Tom and Christina sexual preferences are no secret to the gay community nor is it secret to his close friends (and you know who you are) as to Tom's "flexibility" when it comes to sexual activities. In they gay community their alternative lifestyles have been kept secret because of Tom's unapologetic support of our issues. That's the main reason why Carl Brizzi used the term "glass houses" when they crossed swords him a few weeks back. Christina admits she's bi (usually after a few drinks) and that's what makes her so attractive to Tom and keeps it interesting. As for you naysayers, don't knock it if you haven't tried it.

  11. I think the Brizzi/John fued is a bunch of hype. these guys have too much history together and all that we're seeing is the smooth negotiating tactics of two political hacks. I bet Tom his working hard behind the scences to get Carl a nice little package deal from GOP donors. They still are friends and all we are seeing in an elaborate play for our benefit.

  12. Thomas, Brizzi already has gotten a nice package from donors. He BURNED through his re-election committee money, and THEN decided not to run for a third term.

  13. indy,

    he can't live on those dollars. without the prosecutor's office paycheck i think he would be flat broke. not sure tho'.

  14. WOW! I can't imagine what Marion County GOP donors feel like. This is the best they can do for party leadership? I mean would you write a check to an organization that hires a creep like this? And whose bright idea was it at Ice Miller to hire this guy? John Hammond? Lacey Johnson? Hell you can get a couple rookies who can do a better job without all of this distracting baggage. I mean seriously what is the value of having Tom John on any document, involved in any fundraising or campaigning for you?

    Brought to you by the makers of "Who Izze? That's Brizzi" action figure. Wind him up and watch him corrupt the rest of the toy chest. Also for $2 more you can get his buddy Tom John. Dip him in beer and pull his string and he tries to pick up Ken and Barbie dolls - at the same time.

  16. Hey BITL,

    Don't forget the Abdul doll. The nose connects snugly into the asses of the Izzy and Tom John dolls. The only problem is you need to pull his string to get him to STOP talking. Oh and don't you'll need to buy better accessories and voice card. The Abdul doll comes with cheap ill-fitting suits and a list of terrible jokes.

  17. Oh my! I can't wait until Zoobilation. These two (Tom and Christina) ought to be a hoot to follow around with a camera.

  18. When me and my girlfriend have an argument we usually find a project to work on that can bring us together. Maybe Tom and Carl can work together to find that "sweet young thing" Tom hired to work for the Party that embezzelled $xx,xxx from MCCC, leading to bounced checks and staff layoffs. I'm sure Ballard's campaign manager is tired of loaning money to this clown to keep the local GOP afloat. Between Carl's law enforcement power and Tom's connection in the field of tramps, this should be a fairly easy task. Come on guys can't we all just get along?

  19. @becki,

    Look for them at the IceMiller booth. That's where their binge drinking and frolicking will start.

  20. Old TOJO should be careful with his sexual experimentation. It is quite easy and cheap to conceal cameras these days and there are many people who despise him enough to set him up. He likes his alcohol though. He's an easy target.

    ReplyDelete
  21. TOJO, next time you are slurping on a big one, remember the camera could be concealed anywhere.

  22. topic change...I can't beleive that Ice Miller would make him (Tom John) a partner. Does he really generate that significant amount of billable hours?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Local attorney,yes when you look at the contracts that the city has with IM.Its kind of like being Tony Saprano.

    My question is when will tom john and his little drum beating butt buddy dave brooks break up.

    Brooks spends his weekends running around in the woods naked beating drums and yelling about how bad women are and that he is a real man.

    Whats going on with the forgey case?did Tom John get enough judges appointed to get this thing thrown out?

    Bet you anything that he never sees the light of a court room. His new wife is a priviate eye and has lots of stuff one everyone here in Indy.

    There are some folks out there who need to be afraid. Tom John is a dangerous little man who will stop at nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  24. A naked David Brooks!? Ewwwww!!!! I think I threw up in my mouth. The guy is gross and the most uncouth person I've ever met! Someone needs to tell him to shed the whole "urban cowboy" image. He looks like an broken down extra from the village people.

    Christina Trexler is NOT a licensed private eye. Its a story Tom and Co. created to counter-balance her less than stellar academic achievements. She's just another doe-eyed political groupie with has a marginally pretty face that without makeup is as lackluster as her career. She has struggled for the last few months to prove her worth beyond being Tom John's husband (like that will get you far nowdays) and so far has failed miserably. Doesn't it seem odd that if your husband is the all powerful County chairman that you should be able to get at least a consulting contract or perhaps a paralegal position in a firm as large as Ice Miller? The reality is that most people who meet her find her a vacuous name dropper that has no sense of self-control after the first drink. For most employers that is a clear "Do Not Hire" sign. Ironically she has described herself as a marketing/fundraising professional but can't seem to convince anyone she worth investing in with the exception of Tom John. All I can say is it must really suck to be Tim Ochs right now.

  27. OK since we are clarifying things understand Tom and Christina are not gay, they are bisexual. Know the difference or at least understand there is one. Also, Ice Miller people could care less about this issue, they hired him even though he told everyone for years proffitt was having and affair with murphy. he did that to attack murphy, and at that time did not know he would be at ice miller. they still did not care. business first.

  28. I disagree Anon 12:17,

    businesses and individuals select law firms that are professionally ran and have good reputations. a law firm's reputation is only as good as its worse atttorney. Engaging in alternative lifestyles particularly in Indy (not LA or NYC) isn't good for business. Couple that with his political affiliation Tom's behaviour makes him a ticking time bomb that once triggered will not only do irreparible damage to him but any person or organization he's affiliated with. You only need to look at his stellar fundraising for the Republicans to see evidence of my theory. Bottom line good paying clients want focused, competent attorneys who don't end up with their names in the newspaper or on bathroom walls.
