MINNEAPOLIS — Some people say the push to get a Voter ID amendment on the ballot in November includes racial profiling.

 

TakeAction Minnesota and a coalition of other organizations held a news conference on the issue Monday morning.

 

They say a picture on WeWantVoterID.com is racially derogatory and they want it taken down.

 

They say the picture implies that African-Americans and Latinos are looking to cheat Minnesota’s election system.

 

“It’s nothing short of a racist fear mongering that’s designed to promote the very divisive issue,” said Dan McGrath, executive director of TakeAction Minnesota.

 

TakeAction Minnesota is also calling for an apology and they want the people behind the WeWantVoterID website to stop pushing for a voter ID constitutional amendment.
