Prof. Clary Quoted in MinnPost on Speculation of Election Recount Lawsuit
Professor Brad Clary was quoted in a MinnPost article about the speculation that the GOP may file a lawsuit challenging the outcome of the Minnesota governor's election recount when it's issued. If such a lawsuit were filed, it could potentially keep GOP Governor Tim Pawlenty in office longer. Asked whether the lawsuit could be ruled as "frivolous" considering the wide margin Dayton currently holds, Clary said that "even if no one else has ever won after that margin," if Emmer's lawyers have some "reasonable basis" to file the contest law suit, "the mere fact that nobody else has ever managed to win such a recount wouldn't make it, in and of itself, frivolous."
