|Former candidate for|
|Minnesota Attorney General|
Sharon Anderson has had a number of criminal charges lodged against her in the past, which critics argue supports the thesis that she is nothing more than an eccentric. Notably, following an incident in 1983 when she allegedly stabbed her husband and then punched a police officer, she was charged with assault and later contempt of court; Anderson contends, however, that "she was never convicted in either case." Her criminal record shows that she has served time in jail for failing to pay a traffic violation and for operating an apartment complex with a permit.
Anderson ran for election to the office of attorney general in 2014. She lost the Republican nomination in the August 12 primary. The general election took place November 4, 2014.
