The Path Forward
An Open Letter To Minnesotans
Keith Downey, Chairman, MN GOP


Republicans are said to be at a crossroads; but after traveling the state this past year I am more convinced than ever that the real crossroads are the choices facing our state and our country, and that the path forward for Republicans is to be found in one simple powerful fact:

Campaign Finance Board Rules

Democrat Campaigning Illegal

$100,000 fine one of the largest in state history

 
The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board today levied a $100,000 civil penalty against the Minnesota DFL Senate Caucus for illegal campaign coordination with thirteen of their candidates in the 2012 election.
 
In its ruling, the Board indicated it also plans to fine each of the candidate’s campaigns, since properly reclassifying the expenditures means that the candidates illegally exceeded their campaign contribution and/or spending limits.  A total of over $300,000 in illegal contributions were not reported by the campaigns.
 
“Senate Democrats were so intent on winning at any cost and throwing huge money into the 2012 campaign that they played fast and loose in a big way,” said Keith Downey, Chairman of the Republican Party of Minnesota. “Even though it is over a year too late for the voters in these thirteen districts, and the ruling says nothing about the truthfulness of their ads, today’s ruling does at least provide a much needed check on their campaign financing tactics.”
 
Downey continued, “Many of the Democratic Senators on this list won their elections by narrow margins. We will never know how this illegal coordination would have impacted the results in these races and ultimately control of the legislature.  They cheated, they won, but at least they are being held accountable now.”
 
“We look forward to the Campaign Finance Board’s continued investigation and expect them to thoroughly examine each of the thirteen campaigns to determine the full extent of this wrongdoing,” Downey concluded.

MNsure, the state's health care exchange, is vulnerable to a specific kind of Wi-Fi attack. We discovered this vulnerability during a simulated attack we ran recently.

MNsure denies it has a problem and blames users.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS wanted to see how MNsure compares with other state-run health care exchanges, so we partnered with Mark Lanterman at Computer Forensic Services to test at least a dozen other exchange sites.

More than 41 percent of the sites tested passed, meaning they are not vulnerable to the type of Wi-Fi attack we simulated.
Like MNsure, more than 58 percent failed the test.
During the course of our investigation we also learned why the federal health care exchange might be running better.
It appears the federal government has relied on a couple of high-tech heavyweights for help, including Akamai and Google.

There's no length to which the Democrats in Minnesota won't go to distort and spin the truth to maintain power. Whether it's the deplorable MNSure enrollee numbers, the farm equipment repair tax debacle, or any of the new initiatives that are soon to surface in Governor Dayton's "unsession," what you hear from the Democrats should be fact-checked.

THAT's why the MNGOP launched TruthMattersMN.org,We WILL hold Democrats at every level accountable.  We will call out their lies, insults, and failed promises.

WASHINGTON – At least 140,000 Minnesotans who buy health insurance on their own are being notified that their plans will no longer be available under the new federal health care law, adding to the national furor over canceled policies that has overtaken the health care debate.

Franken's Political Career Tied to Unpopular Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. - "Al Franken is one of ObamaCare's biggest proponents, but the unpopular law is already hurting the middle class and increasing health care costs in Minnesota," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "The result of Al Franken's relentless support of ObamaCare is that  dysfunctional Washington now stands between doctors and patients, which raises costs and lowers the quality of care."
