Follow the money: Ember Reichgott Junge

The big story today is that lots of people who are donating to Ember Reichgott Junge's campaign are Republicans. Are they doing so with tacit approval of Republican higher-ups? Is Ember the Joe Lieberman of Minnesota?

Who knows? But this just adds to the long list of reasons why I don't like her. There was the "DFL" on her billboard issue, when she knows better. There was the faux "police endorsement" ,when she knows better. Ember strikes me as somebody who wants office in the worst way, and will do anything to get it...just like Joe Lieberman!

Anyway, this isn't impressing me any.

Do a little reasearch perfore you post an attack on someone. Ember has recieved about 8% of her donations from people that may or may not be traditinal democratic donars. Most of these are from people she has met from other situations, like co-workers at the law firm she worked for.

The "police union" endosement is a direct quote from politics in minnesota, which is generally more credible than the multitude of political blogs, but wrong in its wording in this example.

You don't have to like the woman, but at least check your facts.
