Kiffmeyer is over the top

From the DFL:

JUDGE RULES FOR STUDENTS, AGAINST KIFFMEYER

(ST. PAUL) 11/7/06 – A Hennepin County District Court Judge ruled today that Republican Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer was wrong in disenfranchising students at the University of Minnesota. The judge ruled that university students can use their university ID cards in conjunction with their bill for utilities provided by their landlords to register to vote.

"Once again, on the day of a major election, a district-court judge has been called in and forced Mary Kiffmeyer to stop disenfranchising voters and do her job," Minnesota DFL Chair Brian Melendez said. “For eight years, we have seen a disturbing pattern of behavior from Kiffmeyer that shows she is not fit to serve as Secretary of State. Thankfully, we have an eminently qualified candidate in Mark Ritchie, who can step in and start running the office effectively, and within the law."
