Former Salem Mayor Pleads Guilty
Last updated on Friday, February 15, 2013
(UNDATED)- Former Salem Mayor Douglas Campbell pleaded guilty to electioneering, a misdemeanor, in Scott Superior Court this week.
Campbell, now the mayor of Austin, had originally been charged with three felonies following an investigation by Indiana State Police.
Since electioneering is a misdemeanor, Campbell avoids jail and can remain in office.
State police began investigating after four voters said Campbell and Terry Danner, a town employee, had visited homes to pick up absentee ballots for the May 2011 primary.
Only election officials or the person voting may handle a ballot.
Brandon White, who ran against Campbell in 2011, filed a formal complaint with the Scott County Election Board, which prompted the investigation
Campbell, a Democrat, served as mayor of Salem from Jan. 1, 1996 to April 2002, when he resigned.
Danner received pre-trial diversion Tuesday, allowing his prosecution on three felony voter fraud charges to be withheld if he completes 100 hours of community service in six months.
In a written statement released through his attorney, Kathleen Sweeney of Indianapolis, Campbell said he was "made aware that my campaign had inadvertently violated an obscure Indiana statute" prohibiting candidates from actively campaigning to voters with absentee ballots."
Campbell said he accepted responsibility for the "oversight" and said he had done nothing fraudulent or unethical. The incident did not affect the outcome of the election.

I agree! I wonder how many of the absentee ballots he delivered were from people who rent from him. I would guess there were more than four but some didn't want to bite the hand that owns the roof over their head.

I was one of them , he came to my home but I think I disapointed him because I wouldnt give it to him to let him mail it,. btw I was never questioned about it. a lot of people were prob never questioned ( I didnt rent fr him . I wd be really curious to know all the people that he took their ballots just how many there would have been

he def has no morales or dignity! If he was any kind of a REAL MAN he would have said folks I screwed up and I accept that I did wrong and gracefully bow out! Used to be before America went to hell that if any one didnt have scruples and was caught in a bad situtation they would be PUT OUT OF OFFICE!!!!!!!!!!I cant believe the people of Austin was stupid enough to vote him in not once but twice! I didnt vote for him! just shame on all of us for not PUTTING HIM OUT. We should have the freedom to say WE DONT WANT YOU OR YOUR KIND. and we def dont need you!!! I mean my goodness how can he even hold his head up. Ever been around some one and you just feel a real quick quiver? hes one of them that just makes my skin CrAwL!!GGRRR!

same reason you see more austin trucks in scottsburg than you do scottsburg trucks - we don't have money, but we have plenty of money to buy gas. no one is paying attention to where the workers and the trucks are at. If it ever comes a time when they forget where they work, all they have to do is look at the truck - the names on the side
