Upcoming federal trial will focus on alleged voting fraud in Minneapolis state Senate primary, court filings say.

Federal authorities charged Muse Mohamud Mohamed in November 2021 with two counts of lying about how he’d handled absentee ballots. The government’s latest brief, filed April 19, reveals the investigation involves the August 11, 2020, primary election in Minnesota Senate District 62, where challenger Omar Fateh beat incumbent Jeff Hayden.
