All I Wanted To Do Was To Vote: Indiana Official Way Worried About Voter Fraud Is Convicted of Voter Fraud

Irony Still Not Dead Dept: Indiana's ousted top elections official, former GOP Secretary of State Charlie White has been convicted of six felony counts of voter fraud - an almost unheard-of offense, despite a slew of voter I.D. laws nationwide and White's support for a particularly onerous Indiana law, upheld by the Supreme Court, which turned out to be no protection against an actual fraudulent voter, ie: himself. Good thing he wasn't black or poor or young or he never would have made it to the (bogus) polls.

“I never intentionally meant to do anything I was convicted of. All I wanted to do was to vote... Even though I have been politically active, I am human.”
