Tony Sutton’s Deadbeat MnGOP Still Owes Minnesota Counties

by TwoPuttTommy on June 29, 2011

For months and Months and MONTHS here at MPP, we’ve covered the Deadbeat MnGOP’s refusal to pay their debts to Minnesota Counties for the services they demanded – DEMANDED – concerning the  November 2010 Election Recount.

And that’s just here, at MPP – - SallyJo at Bluestem Prairie has been all over this scandal, too.

And just this morning, I found two, and possibly three, Counties that STILL HAVEN’T BEEN PAID – Cass, Fillmore, and Grant.  There may be more; after two “No” and a “Don’t think so; will get back to you” why keep going?

The funny thing is, despite Tony Sutton claiming way back in March that the MnGOP would pay it’s bills, it took someone else to to it!

Yes, Beltrami, Chisago, and Clearwater counties told me earlier today that Tom Emmer stepped up and did what Tony Sutton’s MnGOP wouldn’t – pay some bills.

Does it really surprise anyone that a party that would stiff counties for months and Months and MONTHS would drive a state to shutdown?  Because that’s exactly what the MnGOP will do this Friday – shut this state down.

Oh – and can someone call Emmer, and tell him there’s still a few more counties out there, that Tony Sutton’s MnGOP has stiffed?

Hennepin County, where the original suit was filed, has a median household income of $51,711. The median household incomes for the three counties, according to Wikipedia:

Cass 34,332
Fillmore 36,651
Grant      33,775

In other words, screw with the counties who have the least resources to defend themselves.

“Survival of the fittest” and all that, eh?

Gosh, that sure doesn’t argue well for right wing ‘fiscal responsiblity’, does it?

Funny, it never does turn out to be more than their slogan, but not their conduct.
