Will there be one more IP candidate?

A candidate who filed prior to the deadline so far has been denied a spot on the primary ballot by Mary Kiffmeyer. Kiffmeyer's claims this is due to an alleged legal technicality forcing the candidate to file in Hennepin County rather then the SOS office. Mary Kiffmeyer herself handled this candidates application, took his check and apparently did not mention this technicality. It is well established Mary Kiffmeyer has limited understanding of election law, so this matter will be decided by those that actually know and respect the law, the courts.

In any event if she thought this was the law it is her duty to inform every candidate when they come in to file what additional hoops she is creating to limit access to our democratic process. Rumor has it a staffer in the Secretary of State office has resigned over this case.

More details as things develop.

One last thing Joel Spoonhiem for Secretary of State.

If you like Hutchinson, I think you'll be interested in Warner -- a Democrat who got things done in a Republican state (Va.) and left office with a 76-percent approval rating.
