Masked voters lined up in Minneapolis on the first day of voting in September.

The Minneapolis police union put out a call this week for retired officers to help serve as "eyes and ears" at polling sites in "problem" areas across the city on Election Day, at the request of an attorney for President Donald Trump's re-election campaign.

The request was made by William Willingham, whose e-mail signature identifies him as a senior legal adviser and director of Election Day operations for the Trump campaign.

In an e-mail Wednesday morning to Minneapolis Police Federation President Lt. Bob Kroll, Willingham asked the union president about recruiting 20 to 30 former officers to serve as "poll challengers" to work either a four- or eight-hour shift in a "problem area."

Of course, after having thrown the law enforcement and middle class business owners under the bus during the riots and pandemic, were the dem party foolish enough NOT to see this coming? What the retirees are doing is perfectly legal as long as theres no canvassing. The dems have effectively LOST MN and they have NO one but themselves to blame!
