Court Hears Ex-Indiana Elections Chief’s Appeal

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Charlie White's attorney faced tough questioning from a three-judge appeals panel during the former Indiana secretary of state's latest bid to overturn the voter fraud convictions that forced him from office.
 
Chief Judge Nancy Vaidik interrupted attorney Andrea Ciobanu shortly after Tuesday's oral arguments began to ask her what her strongest argument was in White's appeal.
 
Ciobanu said her strongest argument is that the trial court didn't apply Indiana's residency statute “at all'' leading up to White's 2012 conviction on six felonies.
 
White was automatically removed from office in February 2012 after a Hamilton County jury convicted him of charges including using his ex-wife's Fishers home as his voting address in 2010 while serving on the Indianapolis suburb's town council and campaigning for secretary of state.
