Secretary of State Charlie White Can Stay in Office for Now

Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White can remain in office while he appeals an order removing him from the statewide post. Marion Circuit Court Judge Louis Rosenberg announced the decision this morning.

The judge had issued an order December 22 ousting White because he was improperly registered as a candidate when he ran for office in 2010.

White's attorney David Brooks argued in court Tuesday that the judge should stay his earlier decision and allow the appeals process to move through a higher court.

Marion County Democrats say White doesn't deserve to be in office and should be replaced by Democratic Challenger Vop Osili.  They say if the judge imposes a stay, it should only hold until White is possibily convicted on felony charges, pleads guilty or possibly resigns from office. 

White faces numerous felony charges following allegations involving his voter registration status and where he may or may not have resided at the time he ran for office. 

His trial is set for January 29th in Hamilton County.
