Gov. Mike Pence and the Indiana State Police are calling allegations that they are trying to rig the 2016 election by suppressing voters in Indiana "completely false."
Patriot Majority USA, a voter registration agency in Indianapolis, started the accusations against Pence and ISP after police raided an Indianapolis voting agency Oct. 6.
The State Police were looking into a voter fraud case that spans 56 counties, according to a release. Police have been investigating the case since late August, when police learned of fraudulent voter registration forms filed in Marion and Hendricks counties.
Craig Varoga, president of Patriot Majority USA, accused Pence of using the State Police to suppress Indiana voters and violate their constitutional rights in a news release Oct. 6.
"This is not only voter suppression at its worst, it is an insult to all of the honest troopers in the State Police, and to law-enforcement officials across the country, who disapprove of wasting precious crime-fighting resources on partisan witch hunts that further harm relations between police officers and minority communities," Varoga said in the release.
