What goes around, it seems, comes around
Sympathies to U.S. Rep. Bachmann, R-Minn. It’s certainly disturbing when people make conclusions based on unproven allegations and present those allegations as facts to the detriment of the innocent. It would be nice if everyone would quit doing that, wouldn’t it?

Scrutinize solar panel leaders’ gifts to DFL
In my opinion, corruption is the reason for the low esteem Americans have for their elected representatives. Now, the Star Tribune reports that some Minnesota Democrats have received substantial donations from executives, top operatives and their wives of solar-panel companies in the state (“Solar firm taps political allies,” April 25).
The Democrats have responded by placing a clause in the transportation bill that says any solar panels purchased for a government building must come from a Minnesota manufacturer. The message is clear: Send us money, and we will send it back in spades, on the backs of the taxpayer.
