For John, BLUF: The myth is that voter fraud is a myth. Depending on good will to keep a system clean is to misunderstand human nature. Everything else has auditors and audits, because we don't trust people to always do the right thing. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I have been assured by Friends and Relatives that "voter fraud" is a myth Republicans tell each other.
Thus this story must be a myth, including the City names. This Powerline report, from Mr John Hinderacker, talks to the campaign for the Democratic Farm Labor Party (DFL) nomination, between incumbent State Representative Phyllis Kahn and challenger Mohamud Noor.
The race first came to widespread attention when a fight broke out between Kahn and Noor supporters at a precinct caucus. Next, in a historic first, a Democrat finally stumbled across voter fraud in Minnesota: [Extract from the Strib]The reference to Somali voters is not to Somali voters in Somalia, but rather to Somali immigrants living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. US Citizens, one presumes.The Hennepin County attorney’s office is investigating whether a private mailbox center in Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside neighborhood has been improperly used as an address for more than 140 voters.
State records show that 419 Cedar Avenue S. has been used by some of the voters as far back as 2008. [Ed.: In other words, since Al Franken's 2008 campaign.]
No one lives at the address, which is a Somali-dominated commercial building housing several small businesses and a popular mail center.
