One more thing

As we bid goodbye to the mess that was the Minnesota Republican Party's 2011, we here at the Stool want to point out one more silver lining in the cloud that will follow the party into 2012.

Remember that Federal Election Commission fine (actually it was part of a conciliation agreement, but let's not quibble) of $170,000 that is still hanging over the party? Remember the Matter Under Review 5926 that prompted it? The accounting mess that we've spoken about frequently here at the Stool? Remember that it dealt with the problems in the Party's record keeping back in 2006-2008?

It only dealt with the problems in 2006-2008.

Now, it would be irresponsible to speculate what treasures are buried in the stinking pile that is the Minnesota GOP's past three years of record keeping, so we won't. But Happy New Year, Chairman Shortridge and Treasurer Sturrock.*

*Treasuer Sturrock, of course, has already submitted his resignation. No word yet as to possible successors.
