  • Complaints were filed against Indiana congressional candidate Gabe Whitley for excessive campaign contributions and fraudulent finance reporting
  • Whitley’s campaign, “Honest Gabe for Congress,” allegedly accepted donations above the permissible limit and violated regulations about contributions made in the name of others

A series of complaints have been filed against Seventh Congressional District GOP candidate Gabriel “Gabe” Whitley, accusing him of accepting excessive campaign contributions and engaging in fraudulent finance reporting. The complaints, filed by Gabrielle Kendall with both the Indiana Election Division (IED) and the Federal Election Commission (FEC), allege that Whitley’s campaign committee, “Honest Gabe for Congress,” accepted donations exceeding the permissible limit and violated regulations regarding contributions made in the name of another individual. The complaints point to various questionable contributions, including donations from individuals in different states, such as doctors in New York and Utah, and real estate agents in Arizona, Florida, and Texas.

Whitley, who is seeking to unseat Democratic incumbent Rep. André Carson, has denied the accusations, calling them absurd and a result of a longstanding feud with radio host Rob Kendall. Questions about Whitley’s campaign finances have also been raised in previous years, with reports indicating inconsistencies in his fundraising reports. The complaints highlight a pattern of conduct by Whitley that extends beyond Vanderburgh County and the State of Indiana, raising concerns about the legitimacy of certain donors and the overall financial integrity of his campaign.
