Colorado woman says she didn't consent to being on Minnesota's presidential primary ballot. Now she can't get off it.

Krystal Gabel said she was surprised at 5 a.m. on a recent Friday by a Google alert saying she was a candidate for president of the United States.

The Colorado resident clicked on the alert and learned for the first time that her name had been placed on Minnesota's March 5 presidential primary ballot as a candidate for Minnesota's Legal Marijuana Now Party, she said.

"I did not give consent to be on the Minnesota ballot for this race," Gabel said in an email to the Star Tribune. "I was neither approached to run for office by anyone in the LMN Minnesota Party, nor was this candidacy validated by the State of Minnesota."
