New Lawsuit in Minnesota
Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie is being sued over the voter registration records in the state. The petitioners in the suit, the group Minnesota Majority, several Republican legislators and others are alleging voting discrepancies in the 2008 election. The petition, filed with the Minnesota Supreme Court on Thursday (5/28), claims that updates to Minnesota's registration system are insufficient and that the 2008 vote totals exceed voters in the system by 406,000.
