Amazing when republicans say private business is better to do these things than govt. Private business usually are the ones that screw over the public, get away with a hand slap and start their illicit businesses all over again in another state.

martin64: This is the kind of thing that happens when Uncle Sam has the checkbook open. Contrary to your assertion, most businesses are honest.

We are very lucky to have Lori Swanson. One of the few elected officials that actually works hard, and approaches their job with a passion to do what's right for the people of MN. If only our legislators worked this hard, and had a sharp focus on doing what's best for the state.

Evidence that when the government involves itself with too much in the way of government handouts, unscrupulous people will emerge to exploit things. Answer is: less government = less opportunity for fraud.

I like this woman, she seems to be the only elected official in our state government consistently doing the job she asked to do on our behalf. May we clone her please?

I bet if you looked Shawn Dooling's name up in the dictionary it would give you the definition of a "snake oil salesman".

What IS it about alternative energy and shady financial dealings? They seem to go together like flies and dung.

Sad how the StarTribune writer would make accusations and character assasination of a local business and its owner on what is now just an allegation. AND I can guarantee you that several aspects of this story are not accurate...but no one will care after the writer gets his way and puts his opinion or misguided facts in print.. After all, who cares if you destroy peoples livelihood right?
