GOP senator considers another amendment lawsuit against Ritchie


ST. PAUL -- Another lawsuit could arise over a proposed constitutional amendment in Minnesota.

Sen. Mike Parry, R-Waseca, said at mid-day that he will consider taking Secretary of State Mark Ritchie to court, claiming the Democrat is making false comments about a proposed constitutional amendment to require voters to show photographic identification. Parry also thinks Ritchie could be campaigning against the amendment at state expense.
