Indiana Recount Commission to Discuss Secretary of State Challenge This Week

by Gabe Bullard on May 2, 2011

After weeks of delays, the Indiana Recount Commission will meet to consider charges against Secretary of State Charlie White.

White has been indicted on voter fraud and several other charges stemming from his use of his ex-wife’s address while voting in last year’s primary.

The commission has already dismissed a similar complaint that was brought by state Democrats prior to the indictments. The party took the matter to court after White was charged, and a judge ordered the commission to hear the case again. Democrats want White to be removed from office and their candidate from the November election—Vop Osili—named Secretary of State.

The commission will meet on Wednesday, nearly a month after the judge’s order.
