The Indiana Attorney General’s Office is asking the Indiana Supreme Court to review the case of Secretary of State Charlie White. A Marion County judge ruled in December that White is ineligible to hold office because he was improperly registered to vote at his ex-wife’s house in 2010 when he was a candidate. His ruling overturned a June decision by the Indiana Recount Commission that White could stay in office.
Both White and the attorney general’s office, which represents the Recount Commission, have said they will appeal.
In a news release distributed this afternoon, Attorney General Greg Zoeller said his office is asking the state’s highest court to hear the appeal so it could bypass the Court of Appeals.
