Circular firing squad

And this time, it's the Republicans. In response to this story in the City Pages about a staffer for the State Auditor who also brings in a paycheck from the Republican Party, Republican blogs are going at it.

About the substance of the article, I'm not sure this is such a big deal. Although Democrats don't control much of anything right now, it's hard for me to believe that there haven't been examples of when a person was paid by the state and the Democratic party. It probably didn't involve such high positions with both the state and the party, though. I don't see an obvious conflict of interest. It's not like Sutton's state job is auditing casinos and he is moonlighting at one.

But anything that makes Republicans fight each other is okay by me. I expect to see a lot more of this.
