Sitting Congressman and U.S. Senate candidate Todd Rokita is likely to have violated ethics laws. According to the Associated Press, this occurred in 2009 when Rokita was then Indiana’s secretary of state.
What exactly did he do? Well, apparently, he repeatedly accessed a GOP database of donors in his office, on government time. Essentially, he was performing campaign functions on the tax-payer’s dime. That’s a big no, no in Indiana.

Apparently, it happened so frequently that Rokita was even locked out from the database by members of the Indiana Republican Party.
As expected, the Rokita campaign flat out denied the allegations with a campaign spokesperson saying:
“This is a baseless and unsubstantiated hit job. There has been no evidence of wrongdoing provided beside the word of anonymous sources with ties to political opponents.”
This comes after it was discovered that Rokita has spent millions of taxpayer dollars during election years on mailers and radio ads.
This new revelation comes from the same campaign that hasn’t come up with an original idea the entire campaign. He’s just been repeating “pro-Trump” whenever pressed for any kind of an idea.
But, hey defeat the elite, or something, as sitting Congressman Todd Rokita and his campaign like to say.
