Indiana Secretary of State Links ACORN to Possible Lake County Voter Registration Violations

Tim Evans of the Indianapolis Star has this afternoon published a story on-line about indicating Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita's office has done a preliminary investigation of voter registration fraud in Lake County and found several legal violations. By letter Rokita has turned over those findings to the Lake County Prosecutor's Office and the U.S. Attorney's Office for possible action.

Congratulations to Todd Rokita for picking up the ball when the Attorney General dropped it claiming, wrongly as I pointed out on my blog, that he didn't have the authority to investigate voter registration fraud. Here is a video of Rokita discussing voter registration fraud on FoxNews.

Many of my fellow conservative Republican friends opposed Todd when he was originally nominated at the state Republican Convention. Their opposition was based on the notion he was too liberal on some issues, issues the Secretary of State's Office didn't even deal with. I don't know about that, nor do I particularly care. What I care about is having a person in office who exercises the power of his office aggressively but also responsibly. Rokita has done that and for that he deserves our support.
