Former Gov. Joe Kernan says a signature on a petition to place Barack Obama's name on Indiana's 2008 primary ballot isn't his, putting him among dozens of dubious signatures found in a newspaper's investigation.
Kernan, a Democrat who campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2008 primary, told the South Bend Tribune (http://(link tracking not allowed)/noEWg8 ) that he didn't sign the Obama document.
“No, not at all,” the former South Bend mayor said when asked whether the signature next to his name on the Obama petition looked like his own. “Nor does the printing look like mine.”
State Republican Party Chairman Eric Holcomb has called for a federal investigation into the matter. “How deep does this problem go?” Holcomb said.
“Is it isolated to St. Joseph County, or was it a broader, coordinated effort across the state? ... Who forged the signatures and why?”

Hell, I think everything about Obama is a fake.
It makes me wonder if George Soros and Warren Buffet were at one of the Bohemian Grove meetings and bet a dollar that they could take a poor black man and make him president.
Indiana Republican Party State Chairman Eric Holcomb will hold a press conference today to discuss questionable petition signatures that put candidates on the 2008 ballot.
The South Bend Tribune reported Wednesday that it has talked with more than 40 people who say they didn't sign presidential ballot petitions submitted in St. Joseph County for Barack Obama or Hilary Clinton, despite their names appearing on the documents.
Former Indiana Gov. Joe Kernan said a signature on a petition to place Barack Obama's name on the primary ballot wasn't his. Holcomb already has called for a federal investigation into the matter by the U.S. Department of Justice. The press conference was scheduled for state GOP headquarters in Downtown Indianapolis.
Butch Morgan, the long-time Democratic leader of both St. Joseph County and the 2nd Congressional District, has resigned both positions in the first major fall-out of the 2008 presidential petition scandal.
“This is not a happy day for Indiana Democrats,” Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker said of the resignation of Morgan, a well liked veteran of Indiana politics.
Morgan said in a statement that he was was resigning because he didn’t want to be a distraction in the upcoming municipal elections but insisted “I have done nothing wrong and I look forward to an investigation that will exonerate me of any wrongdoing.”
