Entry Description

Secretary of State Connie Lawson’s statement on Butch Morgan being convicted of forging signatures on petitions to place Democratic candidates Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the state primary ballot in 2008

 

INDIANAPOLIS (April 26, 2013) — “I’m pleased the jury found Butch Morgan, the former chair of the St. Joe County Democrat party guilty on all counts,” said Secretary of State Connie Lawson. “Tampering with an election makes citizens question the integrity of our electoral process and our government. This behavior can’t be tolerated and this verdict will serve as a warning to those who ponder jeopardizing the security of our elections in the future. Prosecuting election fraud and tampering is tricky because it can be hard for jury’s to understand, but Special Prosecutor Stan Levco stepped up to the challenge and did a wonderful job on this case.  

 

“As a former county clerk, chair of the Senate elections committee and now chief election officer, I recognize that I’m probably more passionate about election integrity and security than most, but these are battles that must be fought. I applaud the South Bend Tribune and Howey Politics for digging this up and Congressman Rokita for pushing prosecutors to take this case.”
