    Long time pal of Michele Bachmann, Set her up for her first political race (Stillwater
    school board, loss) and then the attack on fellow republican then sen. Gary Laidig who lost the Rep. Party endorsement to her for the Stillwater State Senate seat.

      This is the second Republican Presidential candidate operative (Pawlenty Staffer) to be thrown in jail because of drinking or inappropriate conduct. Maybe they need to get in touch with the Lord…..

    Who cares??? People do stupid things when they’ve been drinking. Doesn’t make him a villain. As if the liberals are perfect????

      That is no defense.

    Ok, first, it definitely has nothing to do with who your friends are or what politician you support. Second, the article said nothing of this guy drinking. Maybe he is just an angry guy who beats his wife, which is not acceptable no matter if you drunk or a democrat or republican.

    Who said he was drunk Jacob? Bit of a double standard on your part.

        He read it he just didn’t comprehend it, don’t confuse the ability to read, with the ability to comprehend.

    who said he beat his wife, maybe he beat his girlfriend.

  6. WHAT????? says:

    Why are people fighting just to fight? Just pathetic that people would be fighting due to a story about someone getting charged with assault. How about you all get a hug and just shut up, I mean come on, what the heck is there to fight about? If this is the biggest problem in your life that you can get that mad to fight over I will gladly change problems with you all.

    According to another story (Strib) he attached his girlfriend at his townhouse, choked her and dragged her down the stairs by her hair.

    Story also said his wife was on Oakdale City council. Wonder where she was when he was entertaining his girlfriend in his bedroom at his townhouse.

    Showing Republican Family Values here.

    Hey,if any of YOU were working with Pawlenty or Bachmann .YOU would have to be nuts to begin with of course.But soon would catch Pawlenty’s bash the poor,sick ,elderly or crippled syndrome from him. Whatever you would recieve from Bachmann would be strange and unintelligible to be sure.Give the guy some good meds and a lobotomy and he’ll be on the road to recovery!

    What came to mind when I saw this guy’s mug shot and read about the hair pulling of his ‘woman’ was FRED FLINTSTONE. He looks just like him. Maybe he could play Fred in the next movie.
