Posted on 06/10/2014 7:35:45 PM PDT by TurboZamboni
As you know, we are committed to overturning Minnesota election law that enables ineligible individuals to vote in two ways: by not determining the eligibility of election-day registrants before counting their votes, and by accepting the statements of individuals that they are eligible even when the state has records showing they are not, such as non-citizens and felons.
We have spent considerable time with our attorneys refining the arguments that connect the precise text of the Minnesota Constitution ([Ineligible] persons shall not be entitled or permitted to vote at any election in this state.) to the statutes that in fact permit ineligible persons to vote. Currently, we are working on the final draft of our complaint and anticipate filing in Ramsey County District Court next month.
We had sought to file our complaint earlier in the year, but due to the complexity of the arguments, and our interest in presenting the best possible case to the court, we have not rushed the filing.

Turbo, I’m going to make a donation now. Are they targeting the suit to have provisional voting EFFECTIVE for November 2014? I would think that TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE in this matter of fraud deterrence.
Same day registration is fraud enablement.
yes, I believe that is their intent.

my guess is the court will delay long enough to insure the dems win uncontested.
