A Hamilton County Judge gave our statewide embarrassment Secretary of State Charlie White another setback yesterday by denying his attempt to have his seven felony charges dismissed. Isn't great having your chief elections officer charged with multiple counts of felony voter fraud and theft? Thanks Indiana GOP!

"A Hamilton County judge has denied Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White's motion to dismiss seven felony charges that were filed against him earlier this year.

White, who is accused of voter fraud and other crimes because of confusion surrounding where he lived while running his 2010 campaign, had argued that the charges should be dismissed because there were problems with the grand jury process that led to his indictment, among other things.

Hamilton Superior Court Judge Steven Nation said in an order today that he found "no sufficient basis for the dismissal of the indictments."

White's attorney, former Marion County prosecutor Carl Brizzi, said in an email that they are "disappointed but respect the court's ruling.""
