Gov. Tim Pawlenty has an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal today discussing why he believes the moral case for unions doesn’t apply to public employment. And then he talked about the issue this morning on Fox News.
Fact checkers will find many of his statements correct, but Rachel Stassen-Berger of the Strib notes he got at least two minor things wrong:
He said in the Journal that the Twin Cities bus strike was in 2005, but it was 2004, she notes.
And in small talk on Fox, he told Gretchen Carlson that the Dome was built in 1986. It opened in 1982, and actually collapsed once because of snow in ’81 before opening.
