Thomas Langhorne has an article for the Evansville Courier Press reporting that Vanderburgh GOP Chairman Brent Grafton has resigned over a controversy over the unauthorized alteration of a state legislator’s profile in a national Republican database.
Grafton came under fire early this week for allowing state Rep. Suzanne Crouch’s primary opponent and several unnamed GOP volunteers to use his log-in credentials to access a secure area of the Republican National Committee’s “Voter Vault” database.
Grafton’s password was enough to enable anyone who had it to edit Voter Vault’s content.
Someone – Crouch’s opponent, Jonathan Fulton, vehemently denies it was him – altered Crouch’s anti-abortion designation to say that she is “pro-choice.”
