MPR reports that of all Minnesota House members running for Governor, Marty Seifert has claimed more expenses than any of them.
This after Seifert called other legislators out on the matter.
Seifert raised the issue last week at a St. Paul news conference. He said he was concerned that some candidates may have used their legislative leadership positions to schedule visits around the state to gain publicity.So, Seifert is arguing that some candidates are actually holding committee meetings and other visits to further their campaign, while Seifert, no longer in a leadership position, uses the same trough to ensure his campaign coffers remain plentiful?
By the way, Marty has blown nearly $6100 in per diem and expenses since June...
At least he'll come up with some nifty one liner to explain all this...something about drunken sailors again I am sure.
