Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman - 2008 Election - 99.99% Accurate PDF Print E-mail

mike freeman hennepin county attorneyHennepin County is the largest county in Minnesota.  It accounts for 40% of all fraud cases in MN.   The number of voter fraud convictions in 2008 was 38.  That's .0057% or less than one in ten thousand votes cast, making Hennepin County's votes over 99.99% accurate.  All the 38 were cases in which felons voted before their right to vote had been restored.  The Hennepin County Attorney's Office worked with other state and county agencies to reduce illegal felon voting. Before the 2010 election, felons who were out of prison but still on probation were sent letters telling them they could not vote. The result: the number of felons charged with voting illegally dropped from 38 to 11 in Hennepin County.  This is a far cry from the claim of widespread fraud frequently made by Minnesota Majority.  Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman stated that Minnesota Majority's claim "is false and they know it."  Read the Statement of the Hennepin County Attorney's Office.
