Skip to comments.Ind. Dem quits in fake-signature flap
Posted on 10/18/2011 8:54:00 AM PDT by ColdOne
An Indiana Democratic county chairman accused of submitting petitions with hundreds of faked signatures for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primary resigned Monday, according to reports.
St. Joseph County Democratic Party Chair Butch Morgan stepped down from his position in light of the scandal, but insisted he had done nothing wrong, the South Bend Tribune reported late Monday night. Morgan also resigned as Democratic chair for Indianas 2nd Congressional District.
He faces allegations he submitted hundreds of forged signatures - including that of a former governor - on petitions to get Clinton and Obama on the 2008 Indiana primary ballot.
I regret having to resign and hope no one will misinterpret the reasons for my resignation, Morgan said in a written statement. I have done nothing wrong and I look forward to an investigation that will exonerate me of any wrongdoing.

This type of fraud isn’t punished nearly harshly enough in this country. It’s a direct attack on the entire body politic and perpetrators should be eligible for Capital Punishment by hanging.
of course,, they all do it,, /S
of course,, they all do it,, /S
Does this mean Great Leader’s name will be removed from the Indiana ballot? Also, were these fake signatures for the dem. primaries or the general election?
OH! He said he didn't do anything wrong, and he's not in that position anymore, so all is well.
If it's not obvious: /sarc
It annoys me that the Left continually answers charges of crimal activity not with "I did not do that", which may be demonstrated to be a false statement, but rather they always say, "I didn't do anything wrong".
In their warped universe there is little crimal activity they can perpetrate that they think is "wrong", even if it's illegal as hell, so this is always their answer.
Stinking Democrat scum.
Sadly Indiana did go for Baraq in 08.
No chance of that in 012.
I will always believe that the democrats cheated their way to a win in Indiana in 2008.
Happened up there in Lake County.
Indiana has always been one of the 1st states to report on election night.
In 2008 it came in very late because of Lake County.
A 2008 incident and he’s “looking forward to the investigation?” What are they waiting for???
I look forward to an investigation, PERIOD!
Americans need to demand their lawmakers to make laws that really matter? Like SEVERE prison time for anything linked to voting fraud.
So let's 'occupy all lawmakers heads'.
Vote fraud in South Bend.
Yet ANOTHER Democrat screwing with the ballot box.
Democrat cheating will be the only reason the 2012 elections will be close.
And leftards here in MN keep claiming there is no voter fraud at all and we shouldn’t need ID to vote.
But....but....but, there's no such thing as voter fraud! The Dems told me so, when I wanted to get Voter ID in place!
If you’ve done nothing wrong, why resign?
Chicago Way thuggery is practiced anywhere there are Dems .. Ping!
