Ind. Courts - More on "Tippecanoe Superior Court judge regrets sending campaign email on work computer, account"

Updating this ILB post from yesterday, Ron Wilkins' story today in the Lafayette Journal Courier begins:

Indiana State Police have been asked to review the campaign email Tippecanoe Superior 4 Judge Gregory Donat sent out from his taxpayer-owned computer earlier this week.

Tippecanoe County Clerk Christa Coffey asked the state police to review the matter late Wednesday on the advice of counsel.

Donat, who is seeking re-election on the Republican ticket and faces Laura Zeman in the GOP primary, emailed the campaign material Tuesday morning around 10 a.m. from his publicly owned email account on the computer owned by the taxpayers.

He admitted Wednesday that he had sent the email, calling it a mental lapse. Another judge brought the lapse to his attention a short time later, he said. He said he was sorry and that he wouldn’t do it again.
