More trouble for former Indiana schools chief Tony Bennett.
The Associated Press is reporting that Bennett kept multiple campaign databases on Department of Education servers and ordered his staff to dissect a speech by his Democratic opponent for inaccuracies last fall in.
If those accusations are true it would be in violation of Indiana election and ethics laws.
Bennett has denied doing anything wrong and says that one of the lists was used to make “thank you calls” on his own time after the election. Indiana law prohibits state employees from engaging in political activity on state time.
It is also alleged that donor lists were found on state computers.
Inspector General David Thomas, a Republican, said his office is investigating Bennett but would not say anything more.
