INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Stonewall Democrats, an organization of gay voters, accused Marion County Republicans of breaking election laws at the Indy Pride festival last weekend.
The Republicans registered voters at a Pride festival booth alongside a raffle for a free television. In a complaint to the Indiana Secretary of State, the Stonewall Democrats allege that laws were broken because voters were required to register before they could enter the raffle.
Aaron Schaler, president of Indiana Stonewall Democrats, calls it an attempt to buy votes.
"We would just like to see the Secretary of State look into it," he said. "We always just want everyone to be above board."
Republicans say it's an attempt to keep them out of the festival.
"It's disappointing that when you try to participate in community events like this," said Marion County GOP Chairman Kyle Walker."That there's other folks that try to take political potshots at you."
Walker says there was no connection between the raffle and the voter registration efforts.
So far, there is no reaction from Secretary of State Connie Lawson.
