Oh those silly repubs.. This week in St. Paul, MN at our state capitol, the phones in the desks of our DFL state senators started ringing during debate of a bonding bill. The calls came from outside lines (as opposed to what the phones are usually reserved for, which is conferring senator-to-senator during session). Turns out that someone gave a confidential list of Senate numbers to GOP phone thugs who called "citizens", told them about how horrible the bill was and asked them if they wanted to talk to their tax-raisin' DFL senator. If they said yes, they were tranferred right to the DFL Senator's phone on the floor of the senate. Bullies- 15 calls got through. Not a lot, but it is the number of slimy tactics that you think can't get slimier, then they do.
I am so sick of their leaders laughing off serious breaches of protocol, decorum or in many other instances, that little thing called the law. And they look so chubby and happy as they justify it.
Who wants to answer this question???
"Mr. Michael Brodkorb ought to consider what his standards are for decorum," Pogemiller said to members of the Capitol press corps, "Is he the Republican party operative when he's standing on the Senate floor? Or is he an employee of the State Senate?"
