(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana Republicans are calling for a federal investigation into whether President Barack Obama got on the ballot illegally here in 2008.

The GOP wants to know who was responsible for alleged forged signatures on Obama's petitions and those for Hillary Clinton.

State Republican Chairman Eric Holcomb sent a letter Friday to U.S. Attorney for Northern Indiana David Capp asking to open an investigation and to punish anyone responsible for submitting fraudulent petition.

The request is based on newspaper articles in South Bend reporting that hundreds of names were forged on petitions to put Obama and Clinton on the primary ballot in 2008.

Holcomb said it wasn't his intent to try to remove Obama from office, but he wants to
know who was responsible and send them to jail.
