2. Talking about a short term.. /

The man whose job is to maintain the integrity of Indiana's elections ignored mounting calls for him to step down or resign after his indictment Thursday on charges he broke the laws he's supposed to enforce.

Republican Secretary of State Charlie White has acknowledged he voted in the wrong district in error but has maintained for months it was an unintentional mistake.

But with Republicans and Democrats both calling for him to step down, White may have a hard time staying in the office charged with ensuring Indiana's elections are conducted with integrity and within the letter of the law.

--- toward the end ---

Despite the investigation, White was elected in November, defeating Democratic opponent Vop Osili and Libertarian Mike Wherry.
