Ex-Indiana elections chief starts political blog

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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.

  • Shining Light on Elected Officials
    This article illustrates that there are likely many examples of this kind of behavior by elected officials and organizations going on in our community. If you know of other acts of political payback, or more on this issue, I found this great site www.politicalpayback.US where you can have your voice heard so officials and the media take notice.
  • Insider Stories
    Of course Charlie White knows where the bodies are buried he was one of the good old boys of the Republican party. I hope he mentions his connection to those he reports on.
  • Really??? Look in the mirror
    CW needs to look in the mirror and blog about his own deeds (or misdeeds) that happened while he was with the inner circles of the GOP. I bet there are thousands of skeletons in his closet that he doesn't want to get out....always pointing the finger at someone else for his own mis-doings. Keep it up, CW. You never told the truth anyway....why should people start to believe you now?!?!
  • first line on blog
    "Sometimes people who think they are brilliant can do some pretty dumb things" - and he's not talking about himself. palm.see.face.
  • of course i'll read anything
    If it's on the internet it MUST be true! I'll be sure to read about how the sausage is made from a guy who couldn't even follow the same laws he was in charge of upholding. Add another link to the "douche" folder.
  • dish the dirt
    I wonder what he really has to say about Carl Brizzi. They’re in litigation, so the best juicy stuff probably won’t ever make it to Charlie’s blog. But I’d love to be a fly on the wall when he spills his guts out loud about Brizzi. Please God, let Charlie White get drunk some night and blog the nasty backstory about Carl and the day he decided Charlie’s trial was such a slam dunk he didn’t need to put on any defense. I love to hear that story. Tell it again Charlie.
  • this should be interesting
    Perhaps a diagram of all the network connections of all politicians to their supporters and those who are elite/wealthy and how they have voted on bills that may have benefited their supporters. The truth may hurt, but there are no non-disclosures in government.

  1. It is nice and all that the developer grew up here and lives here, but do you think a company that builds and rehabs cottage-style homes has the chops to develop $150 Million of office, retail, and residential? I'm guessing they will quickly be over their skis and begging the city for even more help... This project should occur organically and be developed by those that can handle the size and scope of something like this as several other posters have mentioned.

  2. It amazes me how people with apparently zero knowledge of free markets or capitalism feel the need to read and post on a business journal website. Perhaps the Daily Worker would suit your interests better. It's definitely more sympathetic to your pro government theft views. It's too bad the Star is so awful as I'm sure you would find a much better home there.

  3. In other cities, expensive new construction projects are announced by real estate developers. In Carmel, they are announced by the local mayor. I am so, so glad I don't live in Carmel's taxbase--did you see that Carmel, a small Midwest suburb, has $500 million in debt?? That's unreal! The mayor thinks he's playing with Lego sets and Monopoly money here! Let these projects develop organically without government/taxpayer backing! Also, from a design standpoint, the whole town of Carmel looks comical. Grand, French-style buildings and promenades, sitting next to tire yards. Who do you guys think you are? Just my POV as a recent transplant to Indy.

  4. GeorgeP, you mention "necessities". Where in the announcement did it say anything about basic essentials like groceries? None of the plans and "vision" have basic essentials listed and nothing has been built. Traffic WILL be a nightmare. There is no east/west road capacity. GeorgeP, you also post on www.carmelchatter.com and your posts have repeatedly been proven wrong. You seem to have a fair amount of inside knowledge. Do you work on the third floor of Carmel City Hal?

  5. I don't know about the commuter buses...but it's a huge joke to see these IndyGo buses with just one or two passengers. Absolutely a disgusting waste of TAXPAYER money. Get some cojones and stop funding them. These (all of them) council members work for you. FIRE THEM!
