Hillary Clinton is being accused of some dirty campaign tricks in Indiana. A handful of voters are claiming they have received phone calls stating that Bernie Sanders is dropping out of the race, which he is not.

The allegations made their way around Facebook and Twitter starting on Thursday night, and from there, they were picked up by some alternative media sources. Actual proof of the allegation was hard to come by, however.

The allegations that Hillary Clinton is engaging in dirty campaigning in Indiana is, at least at this point, something of a game of political telephone. There are a number of sources reporting that the calls are being made, but so far there is no evidence of the calls themselves. And, more importantly, there is no concrete evidence whatsoever that if the calls are being made, they are originating from the Hillary Clinton campaign or one of her affiliated Super PACs.

YouTube political commentator Tim Black reported on the allegations, sharing the story of Clinton's alleged calls to Indiana residents.

Black noted that this is not the first time in the 2016 presidential primaries that one camp has been accused of telling voters that a rival is dropping out of the race.

"Breaking News: Reports of Bernie Sanders possible voters being contacted by Hillary Clinton campaign and being told Bernie Sanders is no longer in the race. That's right! Robocalls telling voters Bernie Sanders has dropped out of the primary race. This of course is a LIE. This is the same garbage Ted Cruz pulled on Dr. Ben Carson back in Iowa."

This is not the first time that Hillary Clinton's camp has been accused of engaging in some dirty tricks in the campaign for the Democratic nomination. Earlier in April, the Sanders team sent a letter to the Democratic National Committee and chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz questioning whether Clinton has illegally benefited from a joint fundraising committee known as the Hillary Victory Fund.

"The Hillary Victory Fund has reported receiving several individual contributions in amounts as high as $353,400 or more, which is over 130 times the $2,700 limit that applies for contributions to Secretary Clinton's campaign," the letter read.

Many took this to be the work of the Hillary Clinton campaign, with The Horn News writing a story titled "Massive Clinton voter fraud in NY" that had no evidence of voter fraud or any proof of involvement from the Clinton campaign.
