9:07 AM, Mar 15, 2012
The Indiana Supreme Court will rule Thursday morning on whether ousted Secretary of State Charlie White was ever a legal candidate for the office.At issue is a court order mandating that the state recount commission certify Democratic runner-up Vop Osili the winner of the 2010 election because White's candidacy was invalid.White was removed from office last month after being convicted of voter fraud.Democrats contend that White was never eligible to run for office because he listed his ex-wife's address instead of his new condo on his voter registration form to avoid giving up his Fishers Town Council salary after moving out of the district he was elected to represent.Osili, 49, lost the 2010 election by 300,000 votes.The court is expected to hand down its ruling at 10 a.m.
