Greg Wright, an Indianapolis resident and Certified Fraud Examiner, filed an election fraud complaint with the Indiana Secretary of State on Wednesday against Senator Richard Lugar and his wife, Charlene Lugar.
Senator Richard Lugar
Wright alleges that the senator and his wife may have committed multiple felonies for voting in a Marion county precinct, using an address for a home they reportedly do not own.
"It is my understanding that Senator Richard D. Lugar has voted using an 'absentee' ballot that used as his residence a home located at 3200 Highwoods Court, Indianapolis, Indiana 46222," wrote Wright
Wright contends the property "appears to be owned by Elizabeth Hughes" and deeded to David and Elizabeth Hughes in 1989 and quitclaimed from David Hughes to Elizabeth Hughes in 2003.
Wright claims he spoke with Elizabeth Hughes recently who reportedly told him that Senator Lugar "had not lived in the house for 33 years and had no ownership interest in the property.
"She appeared shocked that he used that address as his Indiana residence," wrote Wright while also noting that David and Elizabeth Hughes were also registered to vote using the same address.
That Lugar was committing felonies by signing documents under oath claiming he resided at 3200 Highwoods Court is something I reported on earlier this year. I linked to Lugar's actual voter registration documents.
In response to my blog postings, some people have pointed to a statute that says you don't lose your residency because of your service in federal government. The purpose of that statute is to ensure that people in federal government service won't have their residency challenged because they're spending most of their time living and working in the nation's capitol instead of at their Indiana home Lugar though did not lose his residence in Indiana because of his service as a U.S. Senator. He lost it because he completely gave up any residence in Indiana. Lugar has no home in Indiana. He lives in hotel rooms when he comes back to Indiana...to visit.
Consider this, even if the statute applies to allow Senator Lugar to sign documents under oath his residence is the Highwoods Court address, how does it apply to allow his wife, Char Lugar, to vote in Indiana using someone else's house as her residence?
