Ex-Indiana elections chief starts politics website

Former Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White's voter fraud conviction has taken him out of politics but hasn't stopped him from writing about it.

White, who was stripped of office and his law license after being removed as secretary of state in 2012, has started a political website called "The Indy Sentinel." He said on his Twitter account that he would expose politicians and media who he says serve the elites in both parties rather than the public.

White said he plans to make the website more active in coming weeks. The site currently contains two articles, including one about campaign donations to a prominent state officeholder.

"You're going to see a lot more of that," White told The Indianapolis Star. "I got plenty to write about. I've got a keen interest as of now in the Republican Party. That's the group I was with for 25 years. I know about how everyone is connected, whether it's with each other or with different companies."

White said he has time to devote to the project because he is unemployed.

"My law license is suspended for now. All I can do is say, 'Gosh, all I can do is try to make a positive impact," White said.

Besides appealing his convictions, White also has lawsuits pending against his trial attorney and a federal suit that claims his removal was political "payback" for his actions as chairman of the Hamilton County Republican Party.

White was convicted of voter fraud and other charges in 2012, a case that stemmed from his use of his ex-wife's home as his voting address and living elsewhere in 2010 while serving on the Fishers Town Council and running for secretary of state.

  1. I just wanted to point out that Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, Senator Feinstein, former Senate majority leader Bill Frist, and former attorney general John Ashcroft are responsible for this rubbish. We need to keep a eye on these corrupt, arrogant, and incompetent fools.

  2. Well I guess our politicians have decided to give these idiot federal prosecutors unlimited power. Now if I guy bounces a fifty-dollar check, the U.S. attorney can intentionally wait for twenty-five years or so and have the check swabbed for DNA and file charges. These power hungry federal prosecutors now have unlimited power to mess with people. we can thank Wisconsin's Jim Sensenbrenner and Diane Feinstein, John Achcroft and Bill Frist for this one. Way to go, idiots.

  3. I wonder if the USSR had electronic voting machines that changed the ballot after it was cast? Oh well, at least we have a free media serving as vicious watchdog and exposing all of the rot in the system! (Insert rimshot)

  4. Jose, you are assuming those in power do not wish to be totalitarian. My experience has convinced me otherwise. Constitutionalists are nearly as rare as hens teeth among the powerbrokers "managing" us for The Glorious State. Oh, and your point is dead on, el correcta mundo. Keep the Founders’ (1791 & 1851) vision alive, my friend, even if most all others, and especially the ruling junta, chase only power and money (i.e. mammon)

  5. Hypocrisy in high places, absolute immunity handed out like Halloween treats (it is the stuff of which tyranny is made) and the belief that government agents are above the constitutions and cannot be held responsible for mere citizen is killing, perhaps has killed, The Republic. And yet those same power drunk statists just reel on down the hallway toward bureaucratic fascism.
