Indiana Senator Dick Lugar Has Not Lived in Indiana Since the Carter Administration

English: Official photo of Senator Dick Lugar ...
The Daily Caller: Indiana Senator Richard Lugar Doesn't Live Here Anymore:
Indiana Republican Sen. Richard Lugar is running for re-election in a state he has not lived in for over 30 years.
That would seem to fly in the face of Article 1, Section 3 of the US Constitution:
No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.
So, Dick Lugar has not inhabited the state which he represents since the Carter Administration, which, in light of the US Constitution, would imply that he has not been eligible to run for the United States Senate since the Gerald Ford Administration. It's time to vote for Richard Mourdock in the Indiana Senate GOP primary.

Update: I forgot to mention. Props go to Greg Wright and Diana Vice for the research and reporting on this story. Great work!
