[Swanson] said assistant attorneys general operate much like aides to legislators or in the governor's office. QUESTION: Why does she need 135 "aides"? It is a common tactic for organizers to 'stir the pot' and get louder in their rhetoric as an organizing effort falters," [Swanson] wrote. QUESTIONS: How would she know this is a "common tactic for organizers"? Has she been using public money to consult with a "labor relations consultant" a/k/a "union buster"? If the organizing effort is indeed "faltering," is this the result of union busting?

Perchance unionizing of the attorney general's office would reflect badly on our governor's vice presidential resume?

Yea, like the Unions will make a difference? All they do is forcibly take part of your pay and spend it promoting DFL Candidates in Minnesota. What's wrong with Lori Swanson, guess she just lost the Union support.

Not reporting the potential ethical violations to the MN Board Of Professional Responsibility is mainly a concern of that Board, not the AG's Office, which would normally let the Board handle the allegations and ONLY THEN act, if at all, afterwards. This certainly looks political.
