Lake Elmo, MN (July 7, 2020) -- A couple weeks ago, the Minnesota Supreme Court entered its judgement in the case of De La Fuente v. Simon, 940 N.W.2d 477 (Minn.2020). The court opined that presidential hopeful Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente is not a candidate of the Republican Party Of Minnesota. For that reason, the court ordered Minnesota Secretary Of State Steve Simon need not print De La Fuente’s name on the primary ballot, which allowed the Secretary to continue advertising he will not count votes cast for the candidate. Additionally, De La Fuente’s co-plaintiff, Jim Martin of Lake Elmo, MN, has no right to vote for a candidate if it was not chosen by the party.
Martin published an open letter today on <http://www.votejimmartin.com/?p=1006> in response to the newly entered judgement. In that letter, he presents evidence of the public record demonstrating De La Fuente was in fact chosen by the Republican Party Of Minnesota as one of its candidates. And, he presents publicly accessible evidence demonstrating the Minnesota Supreme Court was made aware the party did in fact choose De La Fuente as one of its candidates. Additionally, Martin lays out the violation of law in the Minnesota Supreme Court’s own words and how that violation is continuing to play out right now.
