A return of Mike Hatch?

The Star Tribune today reports Lori Swanson is considering keeping DFL hack Mike Hatch on the payroll. Mike Hatch was fired from public service November 7th even as the DFL was sweeping just about every other race, due to his irresponsible conduct not only the last week of the campaign, but his entire 8 years in office.

For Lori Swanson to consider allowing Hatch to continue to collect the taxpayers money shows that like Hatch she has a complete lack of respect for the citizens of Minnesota. While it sounds as if this is a short term thing, the transition period was between November 7th and inauguration, and Mike Hatch should be able to provide all the advice that is needed without collecting an additional paycheck after his term expires.
