Chris Barden, GOP candidate for Attorney General, states his case against Lori Swanson – the latest in a two-generation uninterrupted chain of one-party domination of the AG’s office.
I urge you to watch the whole thing. A few “highlights”:
1:07 – Channel 4 tries to interview Swanson about the irregularities Barden found – and gets turned away.
1:45 – Part of the meat of the story – WCCO reports AG lawyers reporting being pressured to work cases primarily for Swanson’s political gain as well as that of her predecessor, Mike Hatch, especially by filing high-profile cases designed to pressure defendants into cheap fast settlements. This isn’t completely news, if you’ve been reading Shot In The Dark;
2:30 – WCCO’s ITeam gives vital background on the allegations against the AGO.’
Watch the whole thing.
Tell a neighbor.
Remember it on November 2.
