Voter puring investigation Sought

La Porte County Demcratic Party chairman John Jones says he is asking

federal election officials to look into the matter.

Jones says more than 13-thousand voters were wrongfully purged.

He also says it stemmed from an effort by Donna Harris...the wife of

La Porte County Republican Party Chairman Keith Harris.

Mrs. Harris is a member of the local voters board.

Jones says the voters taken off the list are now being added back on.

Under federal law...Jones says voters can only be purged if they have not

voted in two consecutive federal election cycles.

He says the voters taken off the registration list voted in the presidential

election four years ago.

Jones says they did vote last year or in 2010 but last year's election was for

local races.....meaning they were not eligible to be purged.

Jones says as of yesterday morning.....nearly half of the purged voters

were back on registration lists.
