    Minnoesta Governor and Repuglican Presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty has been caught funneling funds from a "Support Our Troops" licence plate fund to support an appointee of his office.

    Lee Buckley received funds from the "Support Our Troops" Licence Plate Funds. The money from those plates was supposed to have gone to support the families of service members.

    Minnoesta Law Makers have ordred the funds returned.

    Link: Part of Pawlenty staffer's pay came from license plate funds | StarTribune.com.

    Ah Yes, another Repug who loves being photographed supporting our troops, and decides to fuck our troops instead.

    Cheering a Repug stealing from vet's and servicemen, typical. Who exactly gave money to ACORN (No crimes were committed by ACORN, but Pimp Boy was caught doing some very heavy editing. He might go to jail trying bug a U.S. Senator's Office as well). Who exactly gave money to the Panther's too?

    You have no problem with a Repug Governor STEALING MONEY from a fund dedicated to supporting the Troops, bet you flag waving mother fucker too.

    Nobodys saying that Dems are innocent of this kind of chicanery. However, for someone that has been considered for a Presidential nomination, and is a flag waver, this is a disappointment.

    It's disappointing until you think about how corrupt these people have to be to get that far in a game as dirty as politics. In either party. To really be disappointed you had to expect better in the first place.

    Pawlenty didn't have a shot anyway, he hurt his credibility with the center too badly getting up to his neck in the Coleman fiasco.
