And it is an excellent example of how
"those who have"
"what they have"
"that don't have".
Examples just don't get much better than this.
To fill you in -
Minnesota has a UNFUNDED Voter ID Amendment on the ballot on 11/6. The Voter ID Amendment has been pushed for years by - Mary Kiffmeyer (who needs to be defeated on 11/6) - State Chair of the American Legislative Exchange Council.
The Minnesota Voter ID Amendment is so vague it does not even say what types of identification would be acceptable to vote in Minnesota. The Voter ID amendment may cost up to $100 million dollars and the MN legislature has not funded it - meaning that the counties and cities will need to raise their taxes on citizens to pay for it - if it passes.
There is one main group fighting for the passage of the UNFUNDED Minnesota Voter ID Amendmdment. That group is "Protect My Vote".
Now that you know that part of the story - here's the other part of the story
There's something interesting if you look at the 2012 10th Day Pre-General Report of Receipts and Expenditures for Protect My Vote. $1,300,000 came from Joan Cummins, a "Self-employed Homemaker". The group's total donations are $1,463,146.64. 89% of of the money for taking away the voting rights of people Protect My vote thinks vote for the wrong party is coming from one person. Wow, that must be a great self-employment this self-described homemaker has.
