Kiffmeyer in trouble
Mary Kiffmeyer has been a disgrace as MN secretary of state. In the past election she has picked up on the practice of trying to drive down voter turn outs in order to help your candidates. This is not the way that elections in a free society should opperate. This should give more ammunition to her Critics.
A year after Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer faced election-season questions over how she was implementing a new federal law intended to make voting simpler, a state audit has faulted her office for procedural discrepancies regarding the law.
But the office of the legislative auditor's financial audit did not address the larger issue regarding the new federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) -- whether the secretary of state's office used the new law and the accompanying money to help increase voter turnout.
