Hmmmmm. Seems our demented "governor" receives much less harsch treatment ( and not a headline an nauseum) for his illegal activities from the local media than does, oh, say, Michelle Bachmann for invented and unproven charges about her campaign. But that is just a coincidence, right? ( Ok Red Star censors, delete this one too)

The article indicates that this behavior is "unusual," as in unusual that a politician would be so scrupulous as to give money to the state treasury before he was compelled to do so. Minnesotans are lucky to have such an honest and trustworthy governor!We are all free to agree or disagree with his policies, but his character is worth celebrating.

Buried in this story is a line about Pawlenty essentially doing the same thing but he was a republican so that is not news.

How refreshing a Governor being honest and upfront! Governor Dayton is leading by example a trait that is to be admired.

Once again the DFL is the party of fiscal responsibility and the GOP is the party of bankruptcy! When will they pay back their obligations? When will they be solvent again? I think they should not be allowed to run until they get their bills paid!
