The Associated Press is reporting the following story:
A jury in Noblesville, just north of Indianapolis, deliberated for 13 hours before convicting Republican [Indiana] Secretary of State Charlie White on six felony charges; among those, he was accused of lying about his address on voter registration forms.
The ending of the AP story speaks volumes:
Special prosecutor D.J. Sigler told the jury Friday morning that White is an experienced politician who lied about his address to hide the fact that he had moved out of his council district.
“He knew better at every juncture,” Sigler said.
I can’t think of any good reason why Indiana’s Republican Party should continue supporting Charlie White. If White were a Democrat, then the Indiana GOP would be celebrating White’s conviction.
Corruption in politics is truly bipartisan.
