"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

Democrat Auditor Otto Derelict In Her Duties

Our current State Auditor Rebecca Otto is derelict in her duties. Via Randy Gilbert’s campaign.

MNsure failures in Ramsey County: Where’s Otto?
An exclusive report by KSTP-TV about the continuing failures of the MNsure computer system and its impact on Ramsey County Financial Assistance Services and its applicants is disturbing and disappointing and has Minnesotans asking, “Where’s Otto?”

The Minnesota State Auditor has one primary job: keep a watchful eye on how $20 billion paid by hard working Minnesotans is spent at all levels of local government, including Ramsey County.

This oversight is critical to ensure the money taken from everyday folks is doing what it is supposed to do and is not misused or wasted.

Without explanation, current State Auditor Rebecca Otto has simply ignored the millions of dollars spent bycounty officials on MNSure, expenditures that all parties now admit have not produced anything near the intended value or results. Whether Otto’s refusal to monitor our resources is a result of a lack of experience or familiarity with the Auditor’s responsibilities, or because she is giving a pass to the people who fund her campaign, we know the lack of an oversight plan from the Auditor has hurt those the program was supposed to help. In the face of these problems, taxpayers and the uninsured have a right to ask, “Where’s Otto?”

Minnesota Deserves Better

State Auditor Candidate Randy Gilbert has been a practicing auditor in the private sector his entire career. He has also served the public as a three-term mayor of Long Lake – the sort of local government that the Auditor reviews for financial soundness. As Auditor, Randy knows an audit in the per-implementation phase may have prevented the chaos now facing Ramsey County and other counties across the state with implementing MNSure.

It isn’t often that the challenger in a race for office is more experienced – both inside and outside of government – than the incumbent. Yet in the race to maintain the fiscal integrity of Minnesota’s state and local government, only Randy Gilbert has the knowledge, experience, and independence to provide all Minnesotans the performance they deserve from their State Auditor.

We know every dollar wasted on a poorly run system is a dollar that could educate our youth, help those with real need, or provide tax relief to everyday Minnesotans. Disappointingly, the number of dollars wasted on a poorly run MNSure program with no oversight by the current State Auditor has grown to unprecedented levels.

So, the next time you see a story about the continuing failures of and resources wasted on MNSure across the state, ask yourself, “Where’s Otto?”
