C.W. Prosecutor Finds No Evidence Of Voter Fraud

A prosecutor in Brainerd says he won't file charges in a complaint that two disabled voters had their ballots filled out by a group home worker.  Crow Wing County Attorney, Don Ryan, says there's no evidence the worker influenced the clients' votes.

Ryan says the voters filled out their absentee ballots and the worker merely darkened the ovals so scanning machines would read them.

The Brainerd man, Monty Jensen, filed the complaint over what he claimed he saw at the courthouse on October 30th.  Jensen believed what he observed crossed the line from proper assistance to manipulation of vulnerable adults.  The ballots were all cast for DFL candidates.

Jensen wants to talk to the county attorney and review the investigative report before offering any further comments.
