The war veteran, who is stepping down as a state representative, gets a digital shout-out for 2014.
State Rep. John Kriesel, who isn’t seeking re-election, makes a ‘vote no’ commercial and then tangles with pro-amendment official Andy Parrish, who calls him a RINO.
Some harsh words have been flying over the Vikings stadium vote, which Rep. John Kriesel supported and Rep. Mary Kiffmeyer opposed.
Facing a Senate vote and unhappy Vikings, the stadium plan is in a tenuous political position.
Several hundred conservatives braved the weather to hear Herman Cain. Later, dozens of Viking fans lined Capitol hallways.
The stadium is on the move, showing again that when legislative leaders want action, they can make it happen.
“The last thing I want to do is kill this charities bill because we attached a bleeding-to-death Vikings bill on there,” Rep. Kriesel said.
The Republican, who became a political rock star, says his decision is personal and not political.
