To the editor:
Minnesota has a rich history of voting fraud over the last 10 years. In 2008, 1,099 ineligible felons voted in the General Election; almost 200 have been convicted. In 2008, there were 25 precincts with more votes than voters. In 2010, an election judge in Harris tried to stop 12 cases of voter fraud when the address of a Laundromat was used by all 12. There were over 7,200 unverifiable postal verification cards, resulting in challenged voter status that remain outstanding in the 2008 and 2010 elections. In 2012, an employee of Secretary Mark Ritchie’s was accused of registering to vote and voting under a fake name in the 2004 and 2008 elections.
Recently, at a township meeting in Appleton, I was stunned to hear Senate candidate John Schultz say, “I want to listen to your concerns.” Later he went on to say, “There is no voter fraud in Minnesota,” in response to a question about voter fraud.
Elect a common-sense voice in Torrey Westrom for Senate and vote yes for photo ID. You cannot uncount fraudulent ballots!
How many townships could 7,200 votes nullify?
