INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO/Network Indiana): Indiana’s Democratic Party is lashing out at Secretary of State Connie Lawson for her handling of possible voter fraud.
Lawson announced this week she’s asked State Police to look into what she says are thousands of cases of voters’ names or birthdates being altered, saying it “may be a case of voter fraud.”
Democrats’ get-out-the-vote coordinator Peter Hanscom calls that statement “inflammatory rhetoric,” and compares it to Donald Trump’s repeated charges that next month’s election is “rigged.” He also accuses Lawson of “political games.”
In an email to WOWO News, Lawson called that accusation “absurd,” saying she’s been receiving calls for two weeks from voters saying their registration has been changed.
The Indiana State Police is investigating both this case and another, involving 56 counties, including Allen.
