ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A legal complaint accusing State Auditor Rebecca Otto of misrepresenting her record has been dismissed.
A three-judge panel for the Office of Administrative Hearings dropped the case against the Democratic auditor. The campaign of primary opponent Matt Entenza filed the complaint over a Facebook post by Otto about a vote in 2003 for a voter ID law when she was a state legislator.
Otto says she didn't support a photo identification requirement, but Entenza's camp pointed to legislative votes that she did.
Minnesota Public Radio News reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/1xbjjUG ) that the administrative judges found there was insufficient evidence to conclude Otto knowingly gave false information.
Otto is trying to stave off the Entenza challenge in the Aug. 12 primary as she campaigns for a third term.
