Sharon Scarrella Anderson is an American politician and a member of the Republican Party. She is a 1956 graduate of Saint Paul Central High School and also attended the University of Minnesota.

Though not an attorney, Anderson has repeatedly sought the office of Minnesota Attorney General. Despite a reputation for eccentricity,[1] she registered as a candidate and won the Republican primary election for Attorney General in 1994, defeating the Republican-endorsed candidate, Tom Neuville.[2] She subsequently lost in the general election to incumbent Skip Humphrey. In 2006, she lost the Republican primary for the same office to Jeff Johnson, earning 42% of the vote to his 58%. [3]

In 2009, she registered as a candidate to be mayor of St. Paul, garnering only 3.87% of the vote in the September 15 primary.[4] [5]

In 2010, she registered again as a Republican candidate to be Attorney General of Minnesota, [6] and lost again. [7]
