Secretary of State Charlie White could be forced out of office if convicted on charges of theft and voter fraud.

A judge will rule before Christmas in the latest challenge to Charlie White’s election as secretary of state.

A bipartisan state recount commission unanimously rejected Democrats’charge that White was not legally registered to vote during a transition from his bachelor apartment to a condo with his new wife. Democrats contend the panel misapplied the law defining residency.

Attorney William Groth maintains he was denied due process when he could not take depositions from white and his wife before the commission hearing.

“There certainly are some evidence that we would like to see to determine whether Mr. White and his witnesses were telling the truth when he claimed to be living at the residence of his ex-wife, which on its face is utterly preposterous,” he says.

White is representing himself, but did not show up for the hearing. A spokesman says white has filed a written brief.
