Minnesota State Fair Attendees Sound Off on Debt Collection Lawsuits

http://flic.kr/p/6XphxL

Every year, at the Senate Fair Booth at the Minnesota State Fair, Minnesotans can vote on the issues of the day. This year, one of the questions was:

Do you think debt collectors should be required to verify they have the correct debtor and the correct amount of the debt before filing a lawsuit against an alleged debtor?

A loaded question, to be sure, but here were the results:

A. Yes. 95.8% (5644)
B. No. 1.8% (108)
C. Undecided/No opinion. 2.4% (142)

Not much room for spin, there.
