Rokita Finally Calls For Investigation
He's been very slow to the game, but Secretary of State Todd Rokita has finally called for an investigation into vote fraud activity in Lake County. He's asking Attorney General Steve Carter, who has also been noticeably missing in action, and federal prosecutors to investigate according to an AP report. The problem is not simply confined to fraudulent registrations submitted by ACORN but also includes allegations of absentee voting fraud as well. "In his letter to Carter, the Republican secretary of state said he received detailed complaints from Lake County residents of 'hundreds, perhaps thousands" of violations of registration laws, including fraudulent applications, wrong names on registrations or absentee ballots and fictitious registrations or ballots,'" the AP reports. Democratic Attorney General candidate Linda Pence is usually calling for aggressive action by our Attorney General's office and criticizing it for not doing enough. Why isn't she speaking out on this matter?
