MN GOP Takes Fiscal Conservatism To Logical Conclusion, Is Evicted For Not Paying Rent

News

One thing we at Wonkette HQ don't "get" is the inescapable conclusion in American life that being "fiscally conservative" is somehow synonymous with being "fiscally prudent." Case in point numero one: deadbeat Tea Party Congressman Joe Walsh, who is sofiscally conservative he lives in his office and refuses to pay child support! Case in point numero zwei: check-kiting gypsy Newt Gingrich buying his special lady so many whore diamonds and then stiffing that poor Las Vegas businessman (and everyone else) on his bills. Case in point all of the others: cutting taxes in the middle of two wars and conducting them off-book; threatening to default on our national debt by not raising the debt ceiling; and pretty much every other thing they have done since maybe Eisenhower. But the Minnesota GOP is something special in this regard: they are being evicted from their headquarters for owing almost $100 large in back rent!


So how good are you with money, Minnesota GOP, and why should we all elect Mitt Romney right away for being a fiscal conservative like you?

The eviction action follows a series of revelations last winter regarding debts accrued by the party during the reign of former RPM Chairman Tony Sutton. In December, an internal review of finances revealed that the party owes $1.23 million to creditors, plus more than $700,000 in legal fees accrued during the 2010 gubernatorial recount, and is facing possible fines from the Federal Elections Commission for undisclosed debts. The party is also currently being investigated by the state campaign finance board.

Very good then. [PoliticsinMinnesota]

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
