Ind. Dem. quits in fake signature scandal

Politico An Indiana Democratic county chair accused of faking hundreds of signatures on petitions for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primary resigned on Monday, according to reports.
St. Joseph County Democratic Party Chair Butch Morgan stepped down from his position in light of the scandal, but insisted he had “done nothing wrong,” the South Bend Tribune reported late Monday night. Morgan also resigned as Democratic chair for Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District.

He faces allegation he submitted hundreds of forged signatures - including that of a former governor - on petitions to get Clinton and Obama on the 2008 Indiana primary ballot.
“I regret having to resign and hope no one will misinterpret the reasons for my resignation,” Morgan said in a written statement. “I have done nothing wrong and I look forward to an investigation that will exonerate me of any wrongdoing.”

Move along folks nothing to see here....cough,cough,cough.....
