Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter confirmed Friday that ISP detectives have found evidence of voter registration fraud in their investigation of Indiana Voter Registration Project, dismissing denials by the group’s Progressive parent organization and Indiana’s Democratic Party.
In an interview with RTV6’s Rafael Sanchez, Carter confirms what Gov. Pence said during a campaign event in Nevada on Thursday… More than two dozen troopers are part of the investigation of possible registration fraud in 56 counties.
The investigation centers on the Indiana Voter Registration Project, a subsidiary of Patriot Majority USA, a liberal leaning national political action committee.
Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson announced earlier this week that potentially “thousands” of registrations may be involved in the case.
The Indiana Democratic Party has criticized the investigation, calling it a partisan attempt at voter suppression.
Charges have not yet been filed, but a statement from prosecutors is expected next week.
