It will be a race to decimate the Republican legislators before they succeed in decimating the State of Minnesota.

If these types of people were really interested in furthering certain causes (MN education, Legacy amendment-type work) you would think they would donate their money directly to these groups. Amazing how that never happens and instead the political power they get with these large donations is what they really seems to be interested in.

Thank you, Alida, for all you've done and are continuing to do to help our beautiful, beloved state and its citizens. Maybe we can get ourselves back on track again!

I admire her passion, but she is spending with a blank checkbook. She does not need to be careful to make good decisions with her money. This is all too typical with our government. Perhaps she would be more focused and careful if she had to work within a budget. She was raised and taught to give back, but not to be self sufficient. Anyone who spends that kind of money and does not know how much she has spent is a fool. Good intentions with poor fundamentals.

Limousine liberals and trust fund babies who did absolutely nothing to earn their wealth should be taxed at 90% to keep them from buying their own political offices.

Can an Aristocrat not be a Plutocrat? It would seem so in this case.
