Just last week, the Star Tribune editorial board insinuated I am pushing the land exchange to receive future campaign contributions from “large international mining companies.” Never mind I will be self-term limited out of office before any mining would begin; this kind of casual, baseless accusation of criminal wrongdoing demonstrates what is wrong with our politics today.
