From the Minneapolis Star-Trubune
Senate DFLers are planning to vote as early as tomorrow to reject Carol Molnau as the state Transportation Commissioner, according to Senate leaders.
Senate Minority Leader Dave Senjem, R-Rochester, said he was told by Senate Majority Leader Larry Pogemiller that the vote would occur Thursday.
In an interview, Pogemiller, DFL-Minneapolis, wouldn’t say when the vote will take place, but he said the votes are there to deny her confirmation in the transportation commissioner post. He said discussions were continuing today on when to hold the vote and how to do it “in a dignified manner.”
While Pogemiller would not say when the vote would occur, Senjem said Pogemiller has been clear to him that the vote is scheduled for Thursday.
“I don’t think they are going to enter into the debate a lot. I think they are doing it on a day when the news is going to be dominated by the budget and so this issue will be somewhat secondary,” Senjem said. “We’re prepared here for tomorrow. You don’t have to plan real far ahead to do this.”
Senate DFLers caucused today on the issue, Senjem said he was told. The Senate would only need a simple majority to vote down Molnau’s confirmation and Pogemiller said today it was clear the votes were there to reject her.
Hrmm… It would seem that the DFL here in Minnesota stuffed their hands into bloomers and found – Lo and Behold! They found some cajones!
I’ll betcha Minn GOP Chair
Lord Voldemort Ron Carey starts to cry. No! No! It’ll be Governor Timmeh who cries, Lord Voldemort will say:
I’ll bet Michael B. Brodkorb cries too. He’s a crybaby. He’ll blubber on for about it for a week or so. His titles will go from <H3> to <H1> and he’ll start bleeding from his eyes. Watch all of the GOP do this: “GASP! How rude!! These DFL’ers are such savages!!”
