Allegations of Voter Fraud in Hotly Contested Minn. House DFL Primary RaceUpdated: 06/27/2014 10:14 PMBy: Brandi PowellAbsentee voting started Friday, six weeks ahead of primary elections. Already there are strong allegations of voter fraud.The attorney for Phyllis Kahn says he got word Thursday night; there might be hundreds of people who are registering and voting using an address that’s not their home.Phyllis Kahn is a Democrat who has been serving in the Minnesota House of Representatives since 1973.
Absentee voting kicked-off Friday morning in a hotly contested democratic primary race for the state house between incumbent Phyllis Kahn and Mohamud Noor.Mohamud Noor (Somali: Maxamuud Nuur, Arabic: ????? ????)I’ve been keeping my readers abreast of the latest developments in this race for some time, such as the Somali v. Somali brawl at a Minnesota caucus last winter. This district offers a fascinating preview of the future of the Democratic Party.
Brian Rice, attorney for the Phyllis Kahn Volunteer Committee, claims there’s voter fraud.“I think there is a coordinated effort to use this address to bring voters into the DFL primary election on August 12, that’s what I think is going on,” Rice said. “It’s wrong, it violates Minnesota Law, it’s a crime.”
So, listen up, Somalis: Don’t Vote.
According to voter registration records from the Secretary of State’s office and the DFL Voter Activation Network more than 140 people used 419 Cedar Avenue South in Minneapolis as their home address, when they registered to vote.The address is for what’s called Cedar Mailbox Center. …“We’re asking for an investigation under laws that exist to get to the bottom of this matter,” Rice said.Under state law, you must live in the precinct where you’re voting.“It’s possible that some of these new registrants have already voted, and if they don’t live there, they’ve committed a felony,” Rice said.Hear that, Somali Democrats: Fel-O-Ny.
