Mitch Daniels defends political meeting trip

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University President Mitch Daniels says his trip to a conference in Georgia attended by several Republican presidential hopefuls was a chance to promote the school and meet potential donors.

The former Indiana governor said his decision to speak at the American Enterprise Institute’s private event in early March was appropriate.

He made a pledge when taking the Purdue job to refrain from partisan politics.

Daniels told the Journal & Courier (http://bit.ly/1hgXVG) he’s attended the conference the past three years to learn.

Society for an Open, Accountable Purdue member Joe Perkins said he believes Daniels’ attendance at such meetings breaks his promise to stop being a politician.

Daniels said that holds him to a double standard since other university presidents are free to attend similar think tank events without such scrutiny.
