Indiana delays discipline against ex-election chief

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court has agreed to delay disciplinary action against former Secretary of State Charlie White.

The state disciplinary commission suspended White's law license in April following his February conviction on felony charges including vote fraud, perjury and theft. White was removed from office due to the convictions.

Last week, the Supreme Court granted White's request to stay further disciplinary action until all of his appeals have been completed.

The charges stemmed from using his ex-wife's address as his voting address when he was serving on the Fishers Town Council and running for secretary of state in 2010.

White's sentence of a year on home detention has been stayed while he appeals his convictions.

White didn't return phone calls and emails seeking comment Monday.

  • Charlie White
    Charlie White and his family have suffered enough as a result of his ordeal. He has lost his career. He stands to lose his livelihood. Are these consequences and potential consequences not severe enough? The punishement does not fit the crime. This is a man with a family. What will extraction of another pound of flesh solve? It is time for some compassion.
  • No More Spending
    If you haven't voted already I urge you not to send another big spending liberal to Washington like Donnelly. Our nation is too broke and most constantly borrow and spend just to stay alive. We need someone like Mourdock to go in who has the courage to make real spending cuts.
