Grants Denied for Early Voting Center
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.

VOICES IN THE STREET
Depending on whom you ask, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is either a hero or a traitor.  And a recent film called the Fifth Estate dramatizes the international non-profit as an organization that is run by a man who increasingly cares about his own ego rather than the anonymity of the whistle blowers.  Its posting of classified U.S. diplomatic cables led the U.S. Army, the FBI, and the Justice Department to call for criminal prosecution.  So what do YOU think about WikiLeaks?  We hit the streets to find out.
