Can't win at the polls...off to court. Maybe there's an activist judge who will give elections to the Party of NO.

A group of conservatives in Minnesota refer to themselves as a 'majority'?

LOL!

I'm sorry but you must be confused. If the Republicans do something and the Left thinks that it is wrong, that is OK. But if the does the very same thing and they think that is right, then it is stil OK.

Here's a question. I went to my clinic to have a blood test performed. Before they would take my blood, they needed to see a photo id.

So why is it that I need to produce a photo id to have my blood extracted but I can walk into my polling place with a stupid look on my face and a utility bill in my hand and vote for the US President?

Oh that's right, Mark Ritchie and Keith Ellison tell us that there is no voter fraud in Minnesota.

Leave it to a "group of conservatives" to waste the state's money with a frivolous lawsuit. Who do you think has to pay to defend the Secretary of State?

If you don't check ID's at the polls what good are voter registrations other than for mailing lists

I seem to recall that the elections division of the Secretary of State's office was very busy in the months following the election dealing with another frivolous lawsuit filed by a conservative. Once is a fluke; twice is a habit.

Minnesota Majority president Jeff Davis says the counties failed to post voter history updates as required within six weeks of the November 2008 election.
================================================

As the article states, the lawsuit was filed because the voter database hasn't been updated since the election. MN has same day registration - that's why there were more votes than people registered prior to election day. Duh!
