Ind. Gov't. - Dems file open records request with Gov. Pence

From a news release:

INDIANAPOLIS – Following the official results of the Jasper mayoral election recount – where the race was determined by a single vote – the Indiana Democratic Party today filed an open records request with Governor Mike Pence regarding the involvement of a senior administration official in the recount proceedings.

During formal recount proceedings, Samantha DeWester, Assistant Commissioner for Program Support at the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, was listed and participated as co-legal counsel on the recount petition. It remains unclear as to why a member of the Pence Administration was involved in a mayoral recount, prompting the IDP’s formal open records request.

Here is the letter of request sent to the Governor.
