An Indiana Republican fundraiser has been sentenced to 1 1/2 years in jail for filing false campaign forms and theft, in a plea bargain. Hiller was a member of the Indiana Election Commission. His offenses are not related to his conduct on the commission. The allegation are that over three years he stole about $100,000. He's agreed to pay it back. It isn't clear to me whether he actually stole the money - likely but not certain - or just did a sloppy job of accounting.
Disclosure: Until earlier this month, I've been in litigation against the commission, although never Hiller specifically. oops wrong blog, this was for my election law blog, I'll leave it here as well.
