Our Fine Legislators
KMSP-TV is reporting that, late in the legislative session, Senate offices were the places to go to take the edge off.
The station showed trash cans full of beer, wine and liquor bottles and suggested that at least some the alcohol of might have been provided by lobbyists. Lobbyists are not allowed to give gifts to legislators.
The station has hidden camera footage of a cooler being taken into the office of Senate Majority Whip Linda Higgins (DFL). Lobbyists, state workers and legislators were also seen drinking in the office of Senate President James Metzen (DFL-South St. Paul). Rep. Scott Wasiluk (DFL-Maplewood) partook from Metzen's "bar" and was later seen on the House floor acting sleepy and unable to understand the proceedings via a monitor from Metzen's office.

I'm sure they must be very proud.
