If Secretary of State Charlie White were only U.S. Senator Richard Lugar (R), his fortunes this year would have been a whole lot different. Lugar and his wife, Charlene, are permitted to cast votes and register their automobiles with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles at an address at which neither of them has resided since 1978. A Marion Co. circuit court judge has ordered White removed from office and a special prosecutor has charged him with seven felony counts for using as his registered voting address the home of his former wife where he lived prior to his divorce for a several month period before he moved into the residence he shares with his current wife. It is truly amazing how Gov. Mitch Daniels, the entire political establishment and the news media can disparage White endlessly and make him out to be a loathsome felon for doing something tens of thousands of Hoosier voters in between residences do every year. Being a senator certainly has its privileges for guys like Richard Lugar and Evan Bayh.
