Oh no, it is not even cold in Minnesota yet, and the band “Florida Georgia Line” (I’ve got fire in my blood and desire in my bones”), has left the state. Nevertheless, according to the Washington Post, on August 25th, a Minnesota deputy sheriff (Park Ranger) confronted two adults inside a car at a park in Eagan, Minnesota. As he approached, he noticed a man and woman “making out”, and the female’s “pants were unzipped and pulled down” the deputy noted in his citation report. As it turns out, the two were Minnesota Legislators, Tim Kelly (Red Wing), and Tara Mack (Apple Valley)– and both married to someone else. The lawmakers have adamantly denied the specific allegations and apparently originally intended to fight the “nuisance” citations issued to them, but recent Dakota County Court records indicate that Ms. Mack paid a fine, along with statutory assessment fees in the amount of $$260.00. The charge was deemed a “petty misdemeanor” under Minnesota law and is NOT a crime. It is believed that Kelly also did the same. The two apparently vowed to move on with their lives. However, they still take issue with the details. The Dakota County Sheriff, Tim Leslie, stands behind his ranger saying “he had no reason to lie, that he doesn’t know who these people are. They didn’t identify themselves as legislators.” As to be expected, the article drew some comments from the Post readers:
“this thirty-something chick is hot! i see why that older dude wants to be * * *” (sic)
“How long did the officer watch the proceedings before he issued the citation or “I’ll get to the bottom of this no matter how long it takes.” You go folks. Finally, politicians at the point of screwing each other rather than their constituents”.
We agree with the first sentence in the first comment.
