Minnetrista’s mayor and three city council members are facing stiff financial penalties for participating in a scheme to evade campaign finance laws in the 2014 & 2018 elections. The shadow group “Our Minnetrista” played a central role in distributing money to the candidates. According to the Star Tribune, “the matter has been referred to a prosecutor for possible criminal charges.”

American Experiment has been covering this story since January; happy to see the Star Tribune finally write about it! Too bad the local paper, The Laker & Pioneer, barely covered this important story.

We must hold Minnesota’s elected officials accountable.
