The Indiana Democratic Party has filed a petition with the state, saying Secretary of State-elect Charlie White is not eligible to serve. White, a Republican, is currently under investigation for voter fraud. The state must decide whether he intentionally voted outside of his district – using the address of his old home. If it was intentional, Indiana law says the act is a felony. The Indiana Democratic Party says if White is found guilty and has to resign, White’s Democratic opponent Vop Osili should take office. Usually, the governor would appoint a replacement. But the party’s petition claims state law says when a candidate commits fraud or is ineligible to serve, the second highest vote-getter would replace them – which is Osili. Indiana GOP Chairman Murray Clark dismissed the petition as an attempt to undermine the votes 340,000 Hoosiers cast for White during the election.
