Posted on 12/16/14 at 08:40 am in response to Ventura files new lawsuit against publisher of 'American Sniper'

As a review of the current members of the TAB shows, it's not the case that the far suburbs are being discriminated against when it comes to the composition of the board:

Property taxes fund local streets and roads, but many of these also get state aided funding. You might get an answer to your question here:

I'm thankful the Minnesota Highway Patrol and MNDoT were there to ensure the safety of both drivers and demonstrators alike.

We who live in Wisconsin and work in Minnesota will let you keep your precious grape salads.

He's merely practicing the time-dishonored tactics of Dick Nixon. Admit nothing, deny everything, and make plenty of counter-accusations.

that there would be plenty of counter-accusations. KSTP's predictable response was already baked in.

Posted on 11/13/14 at 06:50 am in response to Audit found ineligible people on state's public-health rolls

From Minnesota Public Radio:

"The Department of Human Services unnecessarily paid for $44,993 of health care benefits because 24 people who enrolled through MNsure had duplicate accounts in the state's health care programs."

-and-

"Nearly 17 percent of the people in records sampled by the auditor were not eligible for the public health care program in which they were enrolled."

So the audit turned up some problems that need addressing, but it's not a big deal....

Not to ignore the broader issues that this essay touches on about #pointergate, but for me that takeaway is that some past and current members of the Minneapolis Police Department secretly contacted KSTP's Kolls to pass along a sensationalistic photo (and deliberately deceiving one at that) and story that was obviously intended to publically discredit Mayor Hodges. It not only hasn't succeeded, it's backfired on the MPD and KSTP so much that they're the ones who are having to do damage...

I appreciate the caution and agree with you on overall MPD involvement with respect to this issue.
