Byberg Buys Endorsements? Hennen Deceives?
MC has explosive information concerning the hard fought contest for the republican endorsement in Minnesota's 7th Congressional District. Documents obtained by MC suggest that far from being neutral in this race, Scott Hennen has been paid over $35,000 by candidate Lee Byberg over the last two years. The top document shows the payments (click on the image to enlarge) while the bottom document contains the balance of an email Hennen sent claiming his heretofore neutrality in the race (click on the image to enlarge).
MC will leave it to others to see if Byberg & Hennen are trying to pull a fast one and deceive the delegates in Minnesota's 7th. Others better placed than MC need to ask some tough questions, however.
The payments put one in mind of that Elvis Costello lyric: "Money talks and it's persuasive."
