The Indiana State Police is investigating allegations of voter fraud by liberal groups in a number of counties throughout the state.  This doesn’t sit too well with Craig Varoga, the founder of Patriot Majority, one of the groups being investigated, who has accused authorities of racism, WIBC reported.

“After all is said and done, when this partisan investigation finds no wrongdoing by the organization, (Indiana Secretary of State) Connie Lawson and the Indiana State Police will have prevented 45,000 African Americans from voting in this year’s elections. That is why today we reported their outrageous actions to the Department of Justice,” Varoga said in a statement.

Varoga says voter fraud investigation is racist.

WIBC added:

In an exclusive interview on WIBC, ISP Chief Public Information Officer, Captain David Bursten, refuted the claims of Varoga:

To his allegations that we are trying to disenfranchise 45,000 African-American voters: I want make it perfectly clear that we don’t take any of the voter registration cards, we copy them. That’s a false and misleading and baiting statement.

He wants to draw attention away from the fact that the actions of people employed by IVRP actually can disenfranchise voters. These people are taking real names, false addresss, false names, false addresses, false dates of birth…they are the ones possibly disenfranchising voters. 

Moreover, WIBC said that Lawson has no investigatory powers.

“I was told (the ISP) was investigating. And they asked us not to go public, until they had some further opportunities to do some investigation. (When ISP told us they were going public,) we decided we needed to alert all voters in Indiana that they should be chekcing their voter registration records through indianavoters.com. The other thing we did that day was we send an email to county clerks and election administrators that they should be on alert to any fictitious looking applications,” Lawson said.

Lawson also responded to Varoga’s claims of racism:

First of all, that’s the most absurd statement I’ve ever heard.

You know, when we register voters in the State of Indiana, on the paper forms that this group [Indiana Voters Registration Project], the question of race or ethnicity is not asked. This is an insult to all 92 County Clerks that they would not process an application because of someone’s race, and there is no way that Craig Varoga – or any of the County Clerk’s offices – would know the race of anyone who applied to register to vote. 

My question for him would be: if you’re registering people to vote are you only registering African-Americans and is that discrimination?

WIBC further said:

Secretary Lawson also stated that, at the time of our interview, she had not been contacted by the Justice Department.

The first investigation into voter fraud focused on a group called the Indiana Voter Registration Project. The group’s spokesperson, Christy Setzer, is the founder and president of New Height Communications, a public relations firm in Washington D.C.

Among the clients prominently listed on their website is Patriot Majority, the group headed up by Varoga.

Translation: Fair and honest elections are now racist.

Let that sink in for a minute…
