Gov. Pawlenty, who has hardly been able to drag himself to Minnesota, let alone to his desk, unleashed a flurry of productivity yesterday, telling Management and Budget Commissioner Tom Hanson:
By this letter, I am directing you to stop all state funding to ACORN unless the state is legally obligated to provide such funding.
As Polinaut reports, however, ACORN and its affiliated organizations receive no funding from the state of Minnesota.
Look for future directives to stop all state funding to Cuba, the Dallas Cowboy's new stadium, Body Worlds, the Rolling Thirties Bloods, French health care, the Teamsters and Margaret Anderson Kelliher's gubernatorial campaign committee.
