Grant Rejection Has Hints of Politics

The Indiana Secretary of State’s Office is playing politics with grants that are intended to improve accessibility in the state’s polling places. That’s according to Monroe County Clerk Linda Robbins, who says the office denied the county grant funding for a project that would improve its early voting center. Robbins says the office is not funding any early voting projects this year, apparently because expanding early voting tends to benefit Democrats. Secretary of State Connie Lawson, who is a Republican, denies the decision had anything to do with politics. Assistant News Director Joe Crawford has the story for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
