"FairVote Minnesota" does not and never has had any legal connection to
the national organization known as "FairVote" (though they obviously
communicate and are collegial). The views of Tony Solgard are his, and not
FairVote's. FairVote does not argue that Condorcet methods would violate
the federal constitution, and would likely defend their constitutionality.
I don't believe Tony Solgard has argued there is any problem with
Condorcet methods with regards to the federal constitution either.

Tony Solgard was president of FairVote Minnesota
when he wrote the quoted article in which he claims
that Condorcet was unconstitutional in Minnesota.
Also the report by the League of Women Voters of
Minnesota refers to him as "Tony Solgard, President
of Board of FairVote Minnesota".
