Republican Secretary of State indicted on voter fraud in Indiana

Republicans are constantly complaining about voter fraud without ever showing any proof. Well my Republican friends, I got good news and I got bad news: the good news is we caught a perpetrator, the bad news is he's one of yours . . .
Secretary of State Charlie White, the top election official in Indianapolis, is facing seven felony counts, including voter fraud, perjury and theft, all connected to what a prosecutor said was an attempt to hold on to his seat on the town council even though he was living outside of his designated district.

White was indicted by a grand jury in Hamilton County on three counts of voter fraud for allegedly lying about his address when he voted in last year's Republican primary, the Courier-Journal reports. In addition he's facing charges of perjury, fraud on a financial institution (for lying about his address) and theft for keeping the salary he received as a member of his town council after he moved out of his designated district.
