Voter Intimidation

Rep. Ellison Takes Over Presser

My friends at Minnesota Majority and other Tea Party and clean elections groups, who maybe more than others have great concern about the legitimacy of their voting rolls and processes, started a collaborative effort called "Election Integrity Watch" to investigate potential violations and to promote voter I.D. requirements in the state. One of their projects was to create an advertisement that informs citizens that voter fraud is a felony (with an image of two wrists in handcuffs, like you see in many ads that fight criminal activity), and gives a toll-free phone number to report suspected vote fraud. The poster also features an image of an eye, as in, "we are watching you," similar to the Neighborhood Watch anti-crime efforts.
