Trickle Down Jason
by Alan Anderson

Jason Lewis, our representative from CD 2, has received a lot of praise and criticism these last weeks. Looks like a rocky road ahead. Some of the concern has been the way he has been voting......not quite the independent voice he ran on. And now with the Trump administration under fire with the Russia investigation, looks like his vote to shield Mr. Trump from exposing his taxes will be a controversial stand. Seems like he doesn't really want the truth to come out. Many suspect Trump is trying to hide something . . .

Very Sad Day
by Dave Mindeman

Al Franken has always been a hero of mine. No one reminded me more of Paul Wellstone than Franken. He has been a progressive, a fighter, and an advocate for so many of us. It is sad that he leaves the Senate. I understand the reasoning. It would be impossible to be effective with this cloud over his head. I am confident that the man accused of these inappropriate behaviors is not a complete picture of him by any means. If anyone chooses to gloat over this resignation, you have my disdain. This has . . .

LTE Writer Thinks A Story On Sexual Harassment Is Just Politics
by Dave Mindeman

Well, this was inevitable...

To the Editor (SunThisWeek):

For two out of the last three weeks, state Rep. Erin Maye Quade has received front page above the fold stories. This past week, the story was regarding sexual harassment at the Minnesota Capitol. I don't dispute that what happened to Maye Quade was wrong and inappropriate, nor do I dispute that it deserves front page above the fold coverage. However, I do draw some conclusions from the story. Conclusions not about Maye Quade, but about the pro-DFL slanted reporting by the new newspaper staff. . . .

To The Pompous Liberal Class - Shut Up For One Cycle
by Dave Mindeman

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the tax bill has passed. After a few minor cosmetic changes in conference committee, this travesty will be law.

During last year's election, the most irritating comment that people (supposedly on my side) kept saying to me is "it doesn't matter, there isn't any difference between the parties."

If you would dare to say that to me today, I would turn seven shades of red, blow up and take you out with me.

There is a pompous liberal class that complains about the Democratic Party ad nauseum without seemingly . . .

Franken Situation: Now It Has To Be A Process
by Dave Mindeman

This Franken issue has become a dark rabbit hole. I can't defend Franken's actions, but this can get to a point where we have to let the process play out and stop the distracting arguments that keep us away from what we need to do.

Unlike a lot of other men being accused, Franken has volunteered to let an ethics investigation run its course. Has anyone else done that? Donald Trump is reversing the one apology he gave on the Access Hollywood tape. Roy Moore hasn't given an inch despite very credible testimony. Hollywood actors . . .
