Late last month, I read an article in the Park Rapids Enterprise:
It’s about a Town Hall meeting where state Rep. Steve Green lied openly, throwing out a wildly false statement about voter fraud along the lines of tRump’s millions of fraudulent votes. 24,000 fraudulent voter registrations in the 2008 Senate race? WHAT?!?! And though the crowd apparently recognized that he was lying, the paper reported the statements and crowd’s reactions, but didn’t challenge him on the fabrication. WHAT?!?!?! The press has a responsibility to expose liars. So I fired off a missive to the reporter… and just now, got notice from a friend that they published it! Here it is:
Here’s the quote: “The Republican lawmaker suggested that most voter fraud occurs in Hennepin County. Green claimed there were 24,000 new voter registrations that had no one living at those addresses in the 2008 election of Senator Al Franken.
And look what kind of legislation he’s behind… HF 551. HF 551 would gut Minnesota’s Department of Natural Resources and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, from the description, “Pollution Control Agency and Natural Resources Department rulemaking authority eliminated, and sunset or enactment of existing rules provided.” Click for larger version:
