Skogen left a financial mess [UPDATED]Published 9:59am Wednesday, October 31, 2012 Updated 12:11pm Wednesday, October 31, 2012
I have just finished reading the latest joke from Dan Skogen. He mailed me an ad which showed him flushing our Senator Bill Ingegbritsen down a toilet.
That takes a lot of nerve, since Senator Ingegbritsen, after more than 30 years as a sheriff’s deputy and county Sheriff, got elected to our State Senate to help clean up an out of control mess in St. Paul. And it was a mess brewed up by Skogen himself, along with his big spending and heavy taxing liberal democrat comrades in the DFL.
After Dan Skogen was sent packing in the last election, Bill Ingegbritsen and his fellow small-government, balanced budget conservatives managed to clean up Skogen’s $6 billion debt and turn it into a billion-dollar surpus — without raising taxes .
So now Dan Skogen thinks that we are foolish enough to send him back to the Senate so he can have another go at chasing away jobs and taking away our hard earned wages with higher taxes? He can take that scheme and flush it down his toilet instead.
