INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A national group opposing gay marriage wants Indiana’s attorney general to investigate whether a former Republican Party chairman offered “unlimited” campaign funds to House Speaker Brian Bosma in the heat of this year’s gay marriage debate.
National Organization for Marriage Chairman John Eastman made the request Tuesday in a letter sent to Attorney General Greg Zoeller.
The Associated Press reported Sunday that former Republican Party Chairman Jim Kittle offered campaign donations to Bosma to protect House Republicans who voted against the marriage ban.
Bosma disclosed the offer in January and initially said he was concerned it might violate state and federal law. He said last week that he did not think any crime was committed.
Kittle later withdrew the offer.
Neither Bosma nor Kittle was immediately reachable for comment.
