Simon Says “I Need More Money”

Andy Cilek isn’t tired of all the winning yet. The executive director of the Minnesota Voters Alliance has just notched another court victory over Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon in a case involving public data that could expose voter fraud.

Even as Simon mulls an appeal of his latest court loss to MVA, Minnesota’s top elections official is requesting funding to pay for another lawsuit at the hands of his nemesis before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018. Included in the House DFL’s state government finance bill is $1.29 million requested by Simon to pay attorney fees for Cilek’s nationally publicized victory in a free speech case over wearing political apparel at the polls. At the same time, Simon continues to withhold public information that two courts have ruled should be provided to MVA in the latest lawsuit. At this rate, look for Simon to file a similar request to fund his latest court battle in next session’s budget.
