INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The top elections official in Indiana (a Republican—MCM) was convicted of multiple charges in a voter fraud case on Saturday, bringing uncertainty to one of the state’s most powerful offices.
A Hamilton County jury found Charlie White, the Indiana secretary of state, guilty of six of seven felony charges: two counts of perjury and one each of false registration, voting in another precinct, submitting a false ballot and theft. He was acquitted of one fraud charge.
Mr. White, 42, expressed no emotion as the verdict was read. Outside the courtroom later, he said, “I’m disappointed for my family and the people who supported me.”
