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.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
