The get-out-the-vote group at the center of a voter fraud investigation here in the state wants a judge to open-up a search warrant so they say they can prove their innocence. They’re Patriot Majority USA and they say allegations of voter fraud are ‘demonizing’ them. State Police investigators say they think they’ve found evidence of fraud in the group’s files, but Marion County’s prosecutor, Terry Curry, isn’t so sure.
It’s been a busy morning of high-speed police chases on this Friday morning for Indy Metro Police. According to various media reports, there were two of them. Metro police brought the first chase to an end in the 2200 block of East 34th Street when they say a man in a black Toyota ditched the car and ran into a house where he had relationship. Police found drugs in that Toyota. Then a few blocks away also on East 34th Street, but at Wallace Avenue, another chase started when officers were called to a report of shots fired further away on East 16th Street. When they arrived, another guy fled. The driver eventually ditched his car and police took him into custody.

It’s back to the campaign trail today after a big scare for Governor Mike Pence Thursday night. Pence’s plane skidded off the runway at LaGuarida Airport in New York City. Pence says the plane made a hard landing and the pilot slammed on the brakes. Investigators are looking into the incident and the Port Authority is asking travelers to check with their airline about delays and cancellations especially Friday morning as crews make repairs to the damaged runway. Pence was on his was to a fundraiser–which he then missed.
Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump isn’t as big as it was last month. Today’s ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll shows the Democratic nominee up four points over Republican Trump, 48-percent to 44-percent. Trump’s number is two points higher than it was in the last tracking poll. Fifty-nine percent of likely voters surveyed expect Clinton to win the White House.
Donald Trump says he’s thinking of suing NBC for releasing the “Hollywood Access” tape in which he’s heard making vulgar comments about women. The GOP presidential nominee told Bill O’Reilly on Fox News, “you’ll see after the election.” Trump claims airing the tape represents an illegal act by NBC. The TV network had planned on showing the tape on their show, “Access Hollywood,” but they were scooped by the The Washington Post, when the newspaper posted it online first.
More than 140 protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline are in custody following a standoff with authorities. An encampment of hundreds of protesters have been blocking access to the planned pipeline in south-central North Dakota since Monday. Police in riot gear and two armored vehicles moved in to clear them out Thursday. Police have been called in to help from various areas of the country. The protesters resisted, with some throwing rocks, Molotov cocktails and bottles at law enforcement. They say the land is theirs by a government treaty in the 1800’s and they are protecting the water supply from the oil.
