INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Emails showing former Gov. Mitch Daniels' efforts to keep a controversial history text out of Indiana's K-12 classrooms show Daniels continued to play sharp-edged politics behind the scenes despite quieting his public rhetoric over his two terms in office.
The man who once charged that Democrats "car-bombed" his first legislative agenda in 2005 became more diplomatic as he grew into the job.
But emails obtained by The Associated Press show he simply took some of that rhetoric private.
That includes when he asked advisers to ensure historian Howard Zinn's "A People's History of the United States" wasn't being taught in K-12 classrooms and to disqualify it from counting toward teacher training credit
Most notes aren't as visceral as the Zinn exchange, and many reflect an incredible eye for political strategy.
