Molnau's and Pawlenty's Coming Impeachment
Molnau now says that she was not aware of the deplorable condition of the bridge. Ok, Minnesota's Commissioner of Transportation was not "in the loop" when the imminent failure of the busiest bridge in Minnesota was being discussed by the department she heads? Please.
The Transportation Committees of both the Senate and House should be holding hearings right now to find out why this collapse was allowed to happen without any warning to the public that the bridge was dangerously deficient. And, you can bet Pawlenty knew too.
Remember the recent mesothelioma scandal where Pawlenty's Commissioner of Health withheld for over a year, important information from the public regarding the elevated cancer risk to miners on the Iron Range? There seems to be a pattern of disregard for public safety from this administration.
If legislative hearings can prove foreknowledge of the bridge's dangerous condition on the part of this administration, the first order of business of any special session should be Molnau's and Pawlenty's impeachment and removal from office.
