Margaret is now facing a felony fraud conviction and has to appear in court on April 2. She intends to defend herself -- no attorney.
Nicollet County Attorney, Michelle Zehnder Fischer said, "If I have probable cause to believe the crime occurred, I do not have discretion to charge, I have to charge it."
Let's not let the facts get in the way.
For example, the voter roster book when Margaret went to vote in person was marked "AB". So they shouldn't have let her vote in the first place. The roster indicated she had already voted via absentee ballot. Sound like felony fraud?
Margaret would like to know, "Why didn't they tell me to go home? That's what I'm trying to figure out." Schneider says she never would have intentionally voted twice -- "It's against the law to do that."
I would be interested in your thoughts and comments. Who has more common sense? Margaret or attorney Michelle Fischer.
We have a long way to go in the fight against Alzheimer's and dementia.
Gotta love great granny Margaret.
