St. Paul – Representatives Steve Drazkowski, Tim Miller, and Jeremy Munson made the following statement:
“Today, we are joining elected legislators and candidates in filing a lawsuit against Secretary of State Steve Simon. Throughout 2020, Secretary Simon illegally altered Minnesota’s election laws. His office issued unlawful consent decrees that greatly affected the rules that govern absentee ballots and who can assist people at the polls. To circumvent the Minnesota Legislature and unilaterally change election law is entirely unconstitutional. This abuse of power must be addressed.
