A Crime to Threaten “Spiritual Injury” to Compel a Voter

Minn. Stat. Ann. § 211B.07 makes it a gross misdemeanor — I think unconstitutionally, at least as to the “spiritual injury” element — to

directly or indirectly use or threaten force, coercion, violence, restraint, damage, harm, loss, including loss of employment or economic reprisal, undue influence, or temporal or spiritual injury against an individual to compel the individual to vote for or against a candidate or ballot question.
