Minnesota Voters Too Smart To Vote For Voter Restriction By Bill Sorem | September 13, 2012 LikeTweet EmailPrint More More on Minnesota Subscribe to Minnesota Click on this picture for video of Mike Freeman comments. Click on this picture for video of Mike Freeman comments.“I think that Minnesota Voters are too smart to vote for something that’s not necessary, restricts franchise and costs a hell of a lot of money,” said Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman after his debate with John Fund, author of, “Who’s Counting? How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk.” Fund is a long time critic of Minnesota elections, 2008’s Franken-Coleman US Senate election specifically, and a nationally known supporter of voter restriction measures. He argued that there is extensive unknown fraud and that a photo ID is a good idea for many purposes other than voting. Freeman stated the opposition to the Voter Restriction Amendment: it’s not necessary and it will disenfranchise about 750,000 Minnesota voters. Support this story and all the stories from The Uptake.
