Judge Stays Order Ousting Ind. Secretary of State

Wednesday, 04 Jan 2012 11:15 AM


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A judge has ruled that Indiana's Republican secretary of state can remain in office until a higher court has reviewed the ruling that ousted him.

Marion Circuit Judge Louis Rosenberg on Wednesday granted Charlie White's request to stay an order to the state recount commission to certify the runner-up as the winner of the November 2010 election, pending the review.

Democrat Vop Osili secured the second highest tally of votes.

Rosenberg ordered the ouster of White last month following allegations he had been improperly registered as a candidate when he ran for office.

White also faces a criminal trial Jan. 30 on voter fraud and other felony charges in connection with the allegations that he lied about where he lived during the 2010 primary. White maintains his innocence.
