• Judge stays own order as White stays in office

    January 04, 2012 No comments

    A judge has granted a stay of his own order ousting Charlie White as Indiana secretary of state pending the outcome of an appeal.

    Marion Circuit Judge Louis Rosenberg on Tuesday considered White’s request that he stay his ruling ordering the state recount commission to certify Democrat Vop Osili as the winner of the 2010 election until a higher court can review the decision.

    Rosenberg issued an order December 22 ousting White because he was improperly registered as a candidate when he sought office.

    White also faces a criminal trial January 30 on charges he lied about where he lived during the 2010 primary so he could remain on the Fishers Town Council. White maintains his innocence.

    Democrats say if White leaves office for any reason, Osili should replace him.
