GOP cleared in Indy Pride controversy

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson has rejected a complaint that accused the GOP of vote-buying at the Indy Pride festival last weekend.

The Indiana Stonewall Democrats charged that a television raffle was used as an enticement to convince people to register to vote. The group called for an investigation on Tuesday, supplying photographs of the GOP booth.

In a letter to Aaron Schaler, the president of the Stonewall Democrats, a representative of the Secretary of State's office says the activity in the photographs doesn't appear to violate the law.
