Be Wary of the DFL Mini-Donut Stand at the MN State Fair
The DFL Mini-Donut Stand is at Coordinates 44°58’51.5″N 93°10’25.0″W
If you buy products from this mini-donut stand you will be unknowingly (or knowingly if you are a DFLer) funding DFL Candidates through the 10th Ward Rural Ramsey County Political Committee. Rep John Lesch 66B, who figuratively got caught with his hand in his campaign funds cookie jar for personal reasons, so it seems; has received funds from this group indirectly in the past. So it is up to you to be wary of this location. With every purchase there you are helping DFLers defeat Republicans in Minnesota.
Now these folks make a lot of money at the state fair from mini-donuts that would make the health conscious zealots cringe. The booth is not marked as the DFL Mini Donut Stand, there is no disclaimer on the booth as to where the money of this group goes to.
There ought to be a law that requires them to reveal who they are and where the money goes.
Rep Randy Jessup & Sen Roger Chamberlain tried to Make a Law
Almost every session of the MN State Legislature, there is a bill that Republicans put together that requires groups that raise money at the State Fair or other public events to show on a visible sign where the money goes to. It isn’t making their operation illegal, but they want the customers to have all the information about the vendor before they make a purchase.
This last session Rep Randy Jessup of 42A & Sen Roger Chamberlain SD 38 made similar bills that were added to the Omnibus bill. They were not signed into law by DFL Governor Mark Dayton.
Rep Jessup did say there is a limit on the number of bags of donuts one can purchase–4 bags. Any more than 4 you purchase they will have to make a record of it being a contribution.
This article is just to identify where the DFL Mini-Donut Stand is. If you don’t want to give money to the DFL to defeat Republican candidates then you can find another Donut Stand, or to Sweet Martha’s Cookies which is nearby. If you are a DFLer and you want to fundraise then that is up to you to. It is just unethical of a party sympathizer to not be open about where their excess money goes. ~~ Publius Jr.
