- While overseeing Indiana's Ivy Tech Community College, V. Bruce Walkup sent college officials and friends emails with sexist jokes and photos of nude women.
- The emails continued at least six months before administrators asked Walkup to stop.
- When asked about the emails, obtained by The Indianapolis Star, Walkup said in a statement: "I do apologize for any misconceptions or persons I may have offended with these questionable emails."
Former Gov. Mitch Daniels, who appointed Walkup in 2005, said he did not know about the emails, but added: “Bruce Walkup is sort of a salty guy.” The email trail suggests the recipients of the emails did not share in the jokes, with the exception of a Department of Natural Resources official whose dealing with Walkup raised ethical questions over hiring. If you want to see the emails in question, The Indianapolis Star features many (redacted) excerpts.
