The Indiana Republican Party demanded an apology today from Democrats who criticized a state investigation into possible voter fraud. The press conference comes after 12 people working for a political action committee were arrested in connection with that investigation. Indiana Republican Party Chairman Kyle Hupfer says Democrats unfairly criticized Secretary of State Connie Lawson and Indiana State Police last October, during an investigation of a political action committee, the Indiana Voter Registration Project.
The investigation lead to two felony charges for false documentation, though neither is defined as voter fraud, which necessitates intention.
Given the arrests, Hupfer says the reaction of the Indiana Democrats was uncalled for.
