MinnPost picked up on a post by Ed Kohler yesterday asking whether the Minnesota prison population helps  Michele Bachmann. You see, most of them are in her district.

In fact, it looks like nearly half of Minnesota’s adult prisoners reside in the Michele Bachmann’s district:

Kohler doesn’t actually provide any answers, unfortunately, or even speculations; he simply asks the question.

I don’t know the answers. Does anyone know what impact counting the 4000+ incarcerated members of Michele Bachmann’s congressional district has on the 6th or the districts those prisoners largely came from, such as the 5th or 4th?

Anyone want to take a stab at it? I’m guessing little to no impact at all, but it’s fun to think about.
