Voter fraud probe in heavily Republican Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana State Police are investigating possible voter registration fraud in nine counties, but the organization in question claims the probe is "partisan harassment."

The investigation started in August, when at least 10 voter registration forms were alleged to have fraudulent information in two counties encompassing the Indianapolis area. Police expanded the probe, saying Tuesday that a search warrant was served for the Indiana Voter Registration Project.

President Craig Varoga of Patriot Majority USA, which runs the registration project, says some forms were missing information but none were fraudulent.

He claims most of the registrations under scrutiny in Republican-heavy Indiana belong to Democratic-leaning voters. The group plans to file a U.S. Department of Justice complaint.

Both sides are expressing concerns about the impact on the Nov. 8 election.
