St. Paul City Council Member Anika Bowie filed for office using wrong address, owes $1,200 in parking, traffic tickets. -
(not sure if my link will get you around the paywall)

St. Paul City Council Member Anika Bowie has more than $1,200 in unpaid parking and speeding tickets dating back to 2021 as well as questions around her sworn affidavit of candidacy, which lists a home address at which she does not reside.

Bowie’s affidavit of candidacy, filed last August with the Minnesota Secretary of State’s office, lists her home address as 839 Aurora Ave. in St. Paul. The duplex was one she had attempted to buy but did not ultimately purchase. “She never lived there, no,” said recent property owner Rodney Mulholland, who sold the duplex to a different buyer around April 1....
...Parking violations

Meanwhile, state court records show Bowie was convicted of overstaying a parking meter 11 times last year, with each incident occurring in Minneapolis. On Aug. 18 and Aug. 15, the dates of her latest citations, she also was charged in Minneapolis with having expired license plates, another petty misdemeanor.

Together with a May 2022 speeding ticket at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and a December 2021 parking ticket in downtown St. Paul, she incurred more than $1,330 in fines and late fees in the past three years, all but $75 of which remains unpaid, according to state court records.

The court records show all but two of the tickets have been sent to a collections agency.

Bowie said last week that she had been unaware of the debt but would pay it off....
...Bowie is engaged to Jamael Lundy, who is a campaign worker, attorney and lobbyist for Hennepin County Attorney Mary Moriarty’s office, and recently bought a house in Minneapolis....

Hmmm....Steve Simon assures us there's no voter fraud...i.e. voters don't need to produce an ID because there is no problem, and his office can't even check on the residency requirements for the CANDIDATES let alone the VOTERS. Remember John Thompson and his Wisconsin driver's license? Things need to be tightened up.

Is anybody going to be held responsible for not vetting this candidate?

"Laws only apply to the little people."

Kind of looks that way doesn't it.
