Minnesota GOP Evicted From Headquarters After Lack Of Payment

Minnesota GOP Evicted From Headquarters After Lack Of Payment

 

It’s a tough economy out there.  You have to stretch your penny, juggle bills, try to extend your credit, make minimum payments and balance your budget to the best of your ability with the income you have.  One false move, and you’re homeless.

No, I’m not talking about the average American this time.  I’m talking about the Republican Party of Minnesota.

Yes, the MNGOP has hit some troubled times.  Accusations of mishandling of funds have flourished.  The party was forced to foot the bill for a costly Gubernatorial recount in 2010.  One key staffer has gone rogue after being fired for allegedly having an affair with his boss, the Senate Majority Leader.

Now, after not paying rent in almost a year, the party is being evicted from its headquarters. “The debt-plagued Republican Party of Minnesota is getting kicked out of its party headquarters near the state Capitol. Massachusetts-based Hub Properties Trust filed paperwork in Ramsey County on Wednesday to evict the state GOP for failing to pay more than $96,000 in rent over the last year.”

Now, a Republican would say that when your bills are more than you can pay, it’s irresponsible or morally bankrupt to walk away, or expect a handout.  So we can only expect that the MNGOP is ready to sit down around the kitchen table, see where they can cut spending, and pick up an extra job or two in order to make ends meet.

After all, it’s what they tell the American public to do.

Bravo! "The Golden Rule" does not apply to the Republican Male...They have no sins just women and children born and enslaved by their vicious ways...They sell the car, they sell the values and even will sell God if he matters...It's the bottom line of the truth.

What does Ethics and Morals have to do with the Republican Rule...When I watch FOX that sells the false it repeats how corruption is born and bred no longer an escape for Christians who dread. It's more about how they got the money so faithful over time, and what they frown on for nickles and dime. They run the Congress, make the rules across southern states like "Boys in the Hood" no less solidarity of White Social Clubs born to be dissedents and weasils in bed! Tell the Truth as You Stand To reflect, the Republican Men have nothing to lend...they are born of greed, vanity and weed...they care nothing about those who try to rise up, there would be no more slaves so then can shut up!

John Z., I'm sure I appreciate our diametrically opposed brains every bit as much as you do, but… may I ask… Why are you (liberal) folks ALWAYS so offended? And why is it you can't seem to articulate why, when asked?

Gee, wish I could not pay my rent for an entire YEAR before I got kicked out. Most of us puny mortals get five days late and we are homeless.

Hey Michael A, how about "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's." And get a grip, my friend.

Why couldn't they go to one of those pay day lenders and get some of that "easy cash"?

Would someone mind appraise me of my egregious offense? My preference would be, Jane B.

Ah sweet sweet irony.

Let's see how they like it. Of course, they'll probably hit up their donors to come up with the back rent and fire some low-level worker for not noticing that the rent checks weren't going out when they were supposed to.
