The GOP needs to man up and pay the 300k back to the state. Their problem entirely.

I'm not sure anyone in the history of this state has sucked more taxpayer dollars while contributing so little. Why is there not more of an outrage about the Republicans hiring this guy in the first place?

How sweet. This dope "settles" for 30K and says Minnesotans will just forget about forking over 300k so he could play his political games. I know this Minnesotan will not forget this expensive game.

The state wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars. Why didn't they just offer more to begin with and avoid all the costs. I think he could have snitched on lots of legislators.

This is all that I ever expect coming from the regressive party. This is them at their best actually.

Well, Mr. Brobkorb: was it worth it. It sure doesn't look like it. Subtracting your legal fees, you got far less than you were offered in the first place.

Another shining example of GOP fiscal responsibility in reality.
