(MN) State GOP faces $533,000 in debt
:nopity:

Still reeling from months of debt, the executive board of the Republican Party of Minnesota held a closed-door meeting Thursday night to discuss party finances and its path forward.

State Party Chairman Tony Sutton emerged after more than an hour and declared it a "positive meeting" but declined to release any further details.

Despite Sutton's assurances, some GOP leaders are surprised the party remains in a $533,000 financial hole.

"It's how much?" said state Sen. John Howe, R-Red Wing. "It appears we have some fundraising opportunities we need to address."

-snip-

For three years, the party failed to properly report debts and deposits on its federal campaign finance reports. It also inappropriately transferred money between accounts.

3. Ah, time to cut spending and engage in austerity, without raising revenues of course
Unless they're actually going to dare to be hypocrites. They wouldn't do that, would they?
