Perhaps if these conservative groups could live within their means, they would not be having this problem. Wait, does this mean that they have a revenue problem?

Good. The only voter fraud that existed was the one that this group tried to perpetrate. Good riddance to these people who tried to steal every election from now until doomsday for the Republicans. They tried to get rid of democracy. Pure evil.

Living beyond your means? Why are conservatives so bad with finances -- don't they know it's "just like balancing your checkbook at home?"

That headline should read "PHOTO ID" -- not "VOTER ID" -- since we do require identification for people to register to vote -- various forms are acceptable.

Borrow and spend, borrow and spend, I guess that this group just can't get it together! This result of course is quite common with the GOP, who hasn't found a budget that they can't screw up even more! When you realize this money went for essentially a non-existent problem we get the message, the GOP loves spending money to accomplish nothing and then learns so much from the experience that they want to waste some more! Great example of monetary stewardship!

Maybe there just isn't an interest in what they are doing.

Since there is almost no history of actual voter fraud in MN, perhaps reality is setting in. Trying to suppress voting by real citizens who don't happen to have a photo ID is just evil and unethical. What would Jesus say about this? Nothing good, I think. Republicans, please repent of your sins and let all citizens vote without your artificial barriers. We are tired of this national right-wing campaign to suppress voting rights. Reminds me of how Hitler came to power.

Maybe they (and other right wing interests) are not the 'majority', after all?

I have a few friends that still "talk the teaparty talk", but are finding themselves wondering "why".....They have jobs, the economy seems to be at least struggling back, and their college-age kids got to keep their insurance while they try to find a decent job. Suddenly, at least here in MN, things aren't looking so bad. I think any politician who tries to run on "abolishing Obamacare" is going to find that we've had enough, and they will not win.
