In a special initiative during the primary election season, The Times will investigate claims made by candidates for public office.

Two more region candidates for public office violated U.S. Department of Defense directives for how they used military photos in their campaign materials, The Times found.
Two candidates for Schererville Town Council and one Crown Point council hopeful in Tuesday's primary appear to be violating state law by overseeing two campaign funds, according to a Times review of public records.

EAST CHICAGO | Mayor Anthony Copeland said fiscal responsibility is of "high importance" in his bid to retain leadership of the city.

EAST CHICAGO | An opponent's claim that the city's incumbent mayor supports relinquishing control of city development funds to a regional development authority is partially true but lacks context, a Times review found.
