Swanson's Shadiness Brought to Light

Preya Samsundar - August 8, 2018

On Wednesday, current Minnesota Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Lori Swanson promised to “run the state the way she ran the AG’s office.”

Just hours after this quote was published, The Intercept released an explosive report accusing Swanson of using her authority as attorney general and promises of employment advancement to compel the employees in her office to work on her campaign.

From the Intercept:

“The lawyers and other staffers in the attorney general’s office interviewed for this article said they felt pressured to carry out tasks like stuffing envelopes for the benefit of the campaign and scheduling campaign events, sometimes during the work day. They said they felt their promotions and pay raises were based partly on participation in political campaigns. Attorneys reported foregoing basic legal work to instead correspond with constituents and defend the office’s and Swanson’s reputation in various public relations campaigns — work they said they felt was political. Multiple sources reported that these office dynamics began as early as Swanson’s first year in office and continued through this year.”

It’s obvious Swanson plans to run the state of Minnesota like she ran the Attorney General’s office – through political intimidation and incentives.

“If this is Lori Swanson’s idea of leadership, we don’t want it.” – RNC Spokesperson Preya Samsundar
