POUNCING – Minneapolis Geography Edition

What is it with DFL politicians who don’t live where they say they live?

  1. Hasn’t even started the job, and already proved to be a liar.

    She’s perfect .

  2. Rules and laws are for little people. Anybody wants to place a wager whether this would be a headline story if a conservative was involved?

  3. We might suggest that this is a “teachable moment.” Candidate for Hennepin County Sheriff is so afraid of Hennepin County that she lives elsewhere. Point well taken, Ms. Witt. She is arguing, more or less, that even the liveable suburbs of Murderapolis like Maple Grove are too dangerous for a police officer who gets to park her squad in front of her home.

    OK, got it. Agreed.
