Recount Commission Sets Hearing Date for White Case

The Indiana Recount Commission will rule on Secretary of State Charlie White’s eligibility next month.

The panel today set a June 21st hearing date to discuss the merits of a challenge that White’s candidacy is illegitimate because he used the wrong address on his voter registration last year.

The commission has already rejected a similar case against White, but was ordered to take it up again after White was indicted on charges of voter fraud. The panel has requested a copy of a report prepared by White’s predecessor Todd Rokita on the previous challenge. The commission has until June 30th to rule on the matter.
