January 1971
Time;1/18/1971, Vol. 97 Issue 3, p16
The article reports on the developments in the Minnesota's state senate elections. Richard Palmer, an editor of two Dulutch weeklies contested his name for the state senate as an independent candidate. To his surprise Palmer won, however it was the starting of problems for Palmer as elections tally stood as 33 Liberal senators, 33 Conservatives and Palmer's independent vote. Palmer finally casted his vote in favor of Conservatives, however before the Conservatives could celebrate, an unfair-campaign-practices charge was filed against Palmer which resulted in a ruling by Lieutenant Governor Rudolph Perpich that Palmer cannot take an oath before his name is cleared of the charge. Finally Liberal senators took the oath as Perpich used his authority and refused to recognize Palmer's vote.
