“Fiscally Prudent” MN GOP Not Paying Rent On HQ, Served Eviction Notice

Posted by Phoenix Woman on April 23, 2012

Time for a bake sale, perhaps?

The debt-plagued Republican Party of Minnesota is getting kicked out of its party headquarters near the state Capitol.

Massachusetts-based Hub Properties Trust filed paperwork in Ramsey County on Wednesday to evict the state GOP for failing to pay more than $96,000 in rent over the last year.

Funny how all the Republican patrons that are so eager to write big checks for Republican candidates haven’t been rushing to save the Republican Party of Minnesota from the effects of the actions of its former chair, the disgraced Tony Sutton.

It’s Sally Jo Sorensen’s world; the rest of us just play in it on occasion.

Here is a great piece by her on Tom Emmer, Tony Sutton and the Republican Party of Minnesota’s self-destructive purity crusade.

Here is another great piece by her, this time on the Republican determination to put the screws to homeless vets.

Speaking of the homeless, here she is taking Steve Drazkowski to the woodshed for his let’s-spit-on-the-homeless-people attitude.

Finally, here she is pointing out the bizarre attitude the local GOP exhibits towards newly elected Hibbing state representative Carly Melin.

I am in awe.
