INDems: AG Rokita Peddles Misinformation, Conspiracy Theories During SB353 Testimony


Todd Rokita in 2004: “…my office continues to seek the elimination of barriers that keep Hoosiers from voting…”

Todd Rokita in 2003: “Unfortunately, the American Revolution was not the end of the struggle for suffrage in this country…”

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today issued the following statement about Attorney General Todd Rokita for purposely using misinformation and conspiracy theories about so-called voter fraud and the 2020 elections to further sow doubt in the American election process that was found to be the “most secure in history”, according to federal security officials:

“Using the power of an elected office to peddle misinformation and debunked conspiracy theories should be beneath any elected leader — that is, unless you’re Attorney General Todd Rokita. The Attorney General’s testimony this morning for the Georgia-like Senate Bill 353 was an embarrassing display of extreme partisanship and a desperate attempt to appease an out-of-office former U.S. president and a dangerous political agenda. 

Security experts confirmed the 2020 elections were safe and fair, and Rokita’s grandstanding – a complete 180 degree change from 17 years ago – illustrates how irresponsible the Indiana Republican Party has become. Their ‘partisan only’ approach to governing is why Hoosiers should no longer trust them to look after the future of Indiana and its families.” – Drew Anderson, spokesman for the Indiana Democratic Party

“Federal election infrastructure officials said in a joint statement on Thursday that the 2020 election was the ‘most secure in American history.’…” […]

“The statement from the agencies said there is ‘there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.’

‘While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too,’ the statement said. ‘When you have questions, turn to elections officials as trusted voices as they administer elections.’” 


Let’s elect more Hoosier Democrats
We can't sit this one out.
