Skip to comments.'I.D. Me' group testing polling-place law (MN)

A conservative group said Thursday that it will ask a federal judge for a restraining order allowing "tea party" paraphernalia and buttons advocating for a voter ID law inside Minnesota polling places. The group, Minnesota Majority, said elections officials in the Secretary of State's office and in Hennepin and Ramsey counties have told election judges such items will not be allowed in polling places. While Minnesota law bars campaign-related political materials within 100 feet of a polling place, the group said their material isn't political. "This is one of those freedom issues I don't get," said Dorothy Fleming, one of the plaintiffs Minnesota Majority and affiliated groups have been involved in election issues for several years. The group is responsible for identifying thousands of names of people it believes fraudulently voted in the 2008 election and turned many over to elections officials in Hennepin and Ramsey counties. Most of those cases fizzled, but dozens have been prosecuted. The group is offering a $500 reward for information leading to voter fraud convictions in Tuesday's election.

Anyone who owns a green van should use it to drive to their local poling place.
Ellison is the head MN moonbat leading the charge to keep MN as the only state I know of that allows “vouching” at the polls. (you can just sign a statement say “yep, I know him/her and they’re legit” & no limit on the number of people you can do this for, either)
In NY, they don’t WANT to know who you are - if you KNOW a name on the list and sign close to the signature shown, you get a ballot!
I insisted they look at my DL - whether they needed to or not.
I've even been threatened with citations over the issue before, and simply invited the officer to do whatever they felt was right, meanwhile, I'm going back to work. Never surrender your rights, ever, especially in the worst possible manner: that of asking a court for permission to exercise them.
