Dan McGrath Claims VOTER FRAUD Partially To Blame For Voter ID Failure

While McGrath claims money as the principle cause for the defeat of the Voter ID Amendment and spends many many paragraphs whining about how super awesome his message was and how super mean the opposition messages were, he doesn’t forget to add this little gem: Ultimately, money was the principle factor in the defeat of the Voter ID amendment. Initial post-election research now being conducted by Minnesota Majority indicates that voter fraud likely played a role, but voter fraud is only effective in a close election. It shouldn’t have even been close. Despite the defeat of the constitutional amendment, the people of Minnesota clearly support requiring photo ID to vote, but were misled to believe that the constitutional amendment was an egregious way to accomplish … Continue reading

In a shocking development, The Minnesota Republican Party found evidence to suggest that Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie is using his office and its website to provide voting and election data to the people of Minnesota.

I Have A Question About Voter ID. Seriously, I’m Wondering…

In the debate over the use of voter photo identification in our elections I find myself swayed by compelling arguments on both sides. On the one hand, I think Minnesota has one of the best election systems in the entire country and I don’t buy the argument that there is some sort of widespread fraud taking place. Evidenced by the 2008 US Senate election and the 2010 Gubernatorial election where our system was scrutinized and recounted and essentially gone through with a fine tooth comb. Perhaps not the best argument against using photo identification but if two consecutive scrutinized elections don’t turn up anything close to widespread voter impersonation fraud, I count that as a clean and fair election system. On the other hand, if … Continue reading

Former Cop Says Voter Fraud Claims Exaggerated

Minnesota Senator John Harrington explains how the claims of voter fraud throughout the state have been exaggerated and would not be solved by Voter ID. It would, however, disenfranchise many students, seniors, and disabled citizens throughout the state.

A Bet Against Voter Impersonation Fraud

Voter ID Proponents claim they are simply trying to stop voter fraud. They use, as examples, an insignificantly small number of instances in which a felon has voted before they are legally able. The problem is that voter ID legislation doesn’t address this problem. The only problem it addresses is voter impersonation of which there are no known examples in the entire state of Minnesota. The ACLU is so confident about that fact that they are willing to provide anyone who brings an example of voter impersonation forward $1000. After no one comes forward let’s hope that they put that money towards defeating any potential amendments that restrict our right to vote.
