1% vs Democracy Report

1% vs Democracy Report

Ratings: (0)|Views: 2,827|Likes:
This report, “The 1% vs. Democracy in Minnesota” follows the money behind the effort to restrict
voting rights in Minnesota through a constitutional photo ID amendment that would make voting—our most fundamental constitutional right—more difficult, and in some cases, impossible for hundreds of thousands of law-abiding eligible voters.

The report finds that executives from Minnesota’s three largest banks—Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank and TCF—led and funded a series of inter-related campaign entities that were instrumental in the Republican takeover of the Legislature that put members of ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) in the House leadership and placed an attack on the voting rights of Minnesotans at the top of the 2012 legislative agenda.
