Minnesota Republicans Exposed
Lets face it: we're all a little bit envious of the attention Minnesota Democrats Exposed gets. When he links to North Star Politics, my traffic more than doubles. He has done some work that has made major newspapers, something that this blogger doesn't ever dare to dream of. He has managed (at least until now?) to maintain his anonymity, a fairly impressive feat. All the while, he has consistently stirred up trouble for the DFL and been one of the centerpieces of the Minnesota blogosphere.
We don't have an answer for him. We need one. It is an article of faith for me that Republicans have more dirt under their nails than Democrats do, that fighting against corruption and scandal is a battle that we can win at. While a few blogs such as Minnesota Republican Watch do some investigative work, it's not really anybody's focus.
Thus, I'm proposing a new group site, which I've just begun building. It will be devoted to uncovering the Republican dirt, scandal, and subterfuge that exists in Minnesota. We've seen bits and pieces of it, here and there, but with a Republican U.S. Senator, Governor, State Auditor, Secretary of State, 99 Republican legislators and 4 Republican members of Congress, there's far more to be uncovered. Together, we can do it.
I'll have more of an announcement when the site's almost ready to come online. For now, if you have any comments, I'd welcome them, and if you have any desire to get involved, send me an email. This is the first public announcement of the site, and thus there isn't anybody working with me yet, so please do send that email if you're interested at all.
