Even the people involved in Coleman's campaign - the ones who litigated the recount - say there was no fraud. Severson is just a flat out liar and unfit for office.

The 32 charged were (allegedly) felons trying to vote. Voter ID would have done nothing to stop them. While in the legislature, Severson voted against legislation that would educate felons on their voting rights, which might have prevented this. I will give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he is not trying to disenfranchise voters, but is just incompetent and doesn't understand the job he is running for.

As far as military voting, Severson has a proven record of...

There is no way to acurately track military voting patterns, but surveys have shown that while the officers tend to vote Republican (though at nowhere near 75 to 90 percent) enlisted men and women lean Democratic.

The biggest problem with military voting - according to the military - is the timing for absentee ballots. That's why moving the primary from September to August was so important. By supporting that change, the DFL was standing up for active military personnel, while 'Dan...

Name a developed country that does not require photo ID? Ok, Australia. Denmark. Great Britain. That took all of 30 seconds on Google to find.

Did you spend any time or make any effort trying to determine if what you said was true? Or does the truth not matter to you?

The worst part is that you had the gall to call others ignorant, when your comment was the ignorant one. You owe everyone here an apology. Shame on you, Mike Downing.

50can may not be funded by the Kochs or any hedge-fund guys, but it is funded by other wealthy right-wingers, namely, the Wal-Mart heirs. Is that really who you want pushing your education "reform"?

When Severson claimed that there were over 6,200 cases of fraud, did anyone call him on it? If someone is going to tell flat-out lies and no one speaks up (or is allowed to speak up) having a civil discourse really doesn't do much good.

Do you know where I got the information about Severson's claim of 6,200 cases of voter fraud? From the Jefferson Center's blog summary of the debate. So either you are wrong, or the Jefferson Center is not improving the discourse, but is instead lying about a candidate's statements.

I would say the Jefferson Center got it right.

Whether Severson is talking about fraud or "potential for fraud" regarding 6,200 votes, the source where he got that number has been thoroughly discreditied. Severson is going around making allegations that are just outright false. And by respecting and giving the benefit of the doubt to his false statements, you are lowering the discourse, not raising it. You are part of the problem, not the solution.

the complaints about the ACA. A lot of people don't like it because it doesn't go far enough, and would prefer a single-payer system or a real public option.

If Dayton is committed to the environment the first thing he should do is cut ethanol mandates and subsudies. Corn Ethanol is far worse for the environment than anything out of the tar sands.
