Indianoplace? Hillary Clinton uses derogatory name for Indianapolis in newly released private emails
More private emails sent by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were released this week, and one of the emails contains a nickname for Indianapolis that Hoosiers may not appreciate.
In an email from April 2010, Clinton writes, “Are you still in basketball-crazed Indianoplace?”
The term Indianoplace is a derogatory name and slang term for Indianapolis.
The email was found in a new bulk of Clinton’s private emails released Wednesday by the U.S. Department of State’s Freedom of Information Act office.
Although her spelling of Indianapolis was wrong, she is right about the city being basketball crazed!

Clinton’s camp responded to CBS4, saying “Hillary Clinton has long loved the Hoosier State and still has fond memories of campaigning there in 2008.”
