The Star Press reports the 50-year-old politician's lawyers filed a motion Monday asking Delaware Circuit Judge Marianne Vorhees to recuse herself.

The motion says state audits from 2005-2010 indicate that departments overseen by the central Indiana county's five judges also deposited funds late.

The prosecutor's office says it's reviewing the motion. It also is seeking to have Dorer removed from office.
