Dear Governor Pawlenty..
I read today where you'll be signing the horrible Twins Stadium Bill this Friday.
I will urge you to show incredible political courage and even an even greater display of the principle that we as Republicans are supposed to show by not only not signing the bill but by vetoing it outright.
It is immoral and unethical to force people to pay for something they will not use let alone enjoy. The people of the state of Minnesota depend on the finality, the rule and the integrity of the law to be able to live their lives as they see fit. This bill has come into being only because those laws have been specifically circumvented not by the courts, but by those we trusted to keep those laws, as we trust you to enforce them. The legislature has betrayed the trust of the people. I would urge you not to join them in that betrayal.
I will be a delegate to the Minnesota Republican State Convention in just over a week.
Should you sign this bill, I will ask you at the convention to justify why you would force my widowed mother to pay even a dime for a new stadium for Karl Pohlad and the Twins. She depended on you. She and others trusted you to be a man of integrity, a governor for the people who would honor his oath of office to faithfully discharge the duties of his office.
I will also ask to justify the intellectual discrepancy between the Twins Stadium bill and Eminent Domain bill you signed and that Lt. Governor Molnau said prevented government from taking property from one person and giving it to another. I will ask you to justify that in signing both bills how you are being intellectually consistent.
I will await your decision by Friday.
