“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.
