Apparently he knows lobbyists. Campaign finance law? Not so much.
Minnesota’s Campaign Finance and Public Disclosures Board fined Entenza $500 for taking a campaign donation from General Mills lobbyist Lee Anderson during the last session of the Legislature.
That’s a no-no.
And a pretty simple one for gubernatorial candidates to avoid: Is the Legislature in session? Yes ___ No ___. If the answer is “yes,” DON’T TAKE THE MONEY. You’d think the Man From Cheerios would know better, too.
The linked AP articles goes on to say:
Entenza has faced campaign finance issues before, including a 2006 fine of more than $28,000 accepting donations above state limits while running for attorney general.
Spot, you mean that Entenza was fined 28K+ while running to be the most senior law enforcement officer in the state?
Guess so, grasshopper; we’ll have to look into it.
