Several victories this week as my Republican colleagues and I continue working hard to bring greater transparency and accountability to government for the betterment of all Minnesotans.

LAWSUIT AGAINST WRIGHT COUNTY
I had a successful hearing in the State Government Finance Committee this week on my bill HF 458 pertaining to State Auditor Rebecca Otto’s lawsuit against Wright County. To help put my bill in context I’ve included some background information below:

VIKINGS STADIUM SUITE CONTROVERSY
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) is a 5-member, Democrat controlled panel. 3 of the 5 members were appointed by Gov. Dayton and the remaining 2 members were appointed by the mayor of Minneapolis.
The non-partisan Legislative Auditor last week released a special report declaring the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority “violated a core ethical principle” by having provided 158 US Bank Stadium luxury suite tickets to family members and friends. Since the release of the special report Minnesotans have rightly become outraged the MSFA has become not much more than a tool to grant U.S. Bank Stadium luxury suite tickets to Democrat friends and family, special access not available to the general public.
The 100-page non-partisan Legislative Auditor’s special report, which can be viewed online, was filled with very strong language repudiating the ethical lapses of the Democrat business of rewarding cronyism with special treatment and favoritism and consistently critical of the dismissive explanations of Chairwoman Michele Kelm-Helgen and Executive Director Ted Mondale.
In the wake of the Democrat PR disaster, Chairwoman Michele Kelm-Helgen and Executive Director Ted Mondale resigned Thursday this week.
