In a shameful slap in the face to the voters of Minnesota and this legislative District, Representative Jeremy Kalin joined ten other DFL House members to kill the Photo ID bill (HF57) which would have required the (simple) showing of a government issued photographic identification (a simple picture ID) when appearing at the voting place.
In the midst of the turmoil that we are experiencing in Minnesota to determine who will be our U.S. Senator it is nothing short of stupid - and a kick in the teeth to the voters - for Kalin to pull a dumb trick like this. It makes a bald-faced lie of his campaign slogan that he puts "People Before Politics!"
People of District 17B - this is who you elected to represent you in the legislature! We hope you are proud of yourself and of Jeremy Kalin.
