Minnesota GOP Senate: On The Air, Flouting Ethics Rules?

Posted by Phoenix Woman on March 1, 2011

Senate ethics policies (policies 1.45, 1.50 and 1.60 in particular, and Senate Rule 56.3, as Michael Jungbauer (R-Senate District 48) was painfully reminded in 2005) forbid Minnesota’s state senators from using state workers on the clock for partisan purposes. They also forbid state senators from using state equipment, including television stations, print shops, and internet resources set aside for Senate use, for partisan purposes.

Bear this in mind when you read this brace of stories, here and here, by Bluestem Prairie’s Sally Jo Sorensen on the Senate Republican Majority Caucus’ new radio show, “Inside the Senate”. Ms. Sorensen seems to be the only person asking those impertinent questions concerning who, exactly, is paying for this media extravaganza. The Tice-edited StarTribune certainly isn’t interested.

    I’m not sure what the problem is, everyone knows the rules are for poor citizens and not rich/demodogs/repugs. Rich, demodogs, and repugs make the rules up as they break them;)
