IMPORTANT
Citizens need to Call the Governor and the Attorney General

On Thursday Rep. Dan Severson delivered letters to Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Att. Gen. Lori Swanson. Posted below are the actual letters that were delivered.

Now, it is time to do our part

The Governor and the Attorney General need to know that we are aware of the corruption of public officials and that we want a special grand jury to investigate.

The one complaint that was given to the Attorney General is just the beginning, and there are hundreds more complaints from across the state. Our voices need to be heard.

When you call and/or email, be brief and direct. Tell them you are aware of the corruption, or are a victim of crimes done against your civil rights by public officials. But, do not get into details about your specific issues because the message that we want action could get lost.

Phone numbers:
Gov. Pawlenty: 651-296-3391
Att. Gen. Lori Swanson: 651-296-6196

Email:
Gov. Pawlenty: tim.pawlenty@state.mn.us
Att. Gen. Lori Swanson: attorney.general@state.mn.us

Here are the letters from Rep. Severson:

LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR:

Dan Severson State Representative

December 13, 2007

Governor Tim Pawlenty

Dear Governor Pawlenty,

For many months, Citizens have been coming to me with evidence of extreme misconduct in office of many public officers in various counties in the state.

Citizens and members of the legislature made repeated attempts to bring this evidence to the grand juries in multiple counties. All efforts to bring the evidence to the grand juries have been blocked.

I was able to secure the name of the grand jury foreperson for Ramsey County, Christina Becher, and send her a Criminal Complaint concerning crimes done against a Citizen that is in active military duty. Christina Becher gave the Complaint to Charles Balck of the Ramsey County attorney’s office. Instead of properly handling the matter, Mr. Balck gave the Complaint to Chief Judge Greg Johnson of the Ramsey County district court.

My concern is that our Military personnel are not being properly protected in our courts system and this case addresses those concerns.

I have asked Lori Swanson, Minnesota Attorney General to convene a Special Grand Jury. I have given the Complaint and all supporting evidence to Ms. Swanson.

Given the seriousness of the federal crimes, I suggest that we jointly seek assistance from the Minnesota U.S. Attorney General.

Sincerely,

Dan Severson
State Representative

LETTER TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL:

Dan Severson State Representative

December 13, 2007

Lori Swanson
Minnesota Attorney General

Dear Ms. Swanson,

I am contacting you in my official position as the Representative of the People of the state of Minnesota, and as a Citizen of the state of Minnesota. It is with the profound concern of the rights of the Citizens and the Laws of this state that I am writing you.

For many months, citizens have been coming to me with evidence of misconduct in the office of a number of public officers in various counties in the state. Citizens and members of the legislature made attempts to bring this evidence to the grand juries in multiple counties. All efforts to bring the evidence to the grand juries have been blocked.

I was able to secure the name of the grand jury foreperson for Ramsey County, Christina Becher, and I sent her a Criminal Complaint concerning crimes done against a Citizen that is in active military duty. Christina Becher gave the Complaint to Charles Balck of the Ramsey County attorney’s office. Instead of properly handling the matter by contacting your office and having you handle the matter, Mr. Balck gave the Complaint to Chief Judge Greg Johnson of the Ramsey County district court.

The secrecy of the Ramsey County grand jury’s investigation has been virtually eliminated by the actions of Mr. Balck. Chief Judge Johnson was absent any authority to hinder or direct the investigation by the Ramsey County grand jury.

And, we are still faced with the real and immediate problem of public officials violating state and federal statutes.

It is the duty of those in service to the people of the state of Minnesota to ensure that our laws are upheld. Equally, there is evidence of the commission of federal crimes by state officials.

Accordingly, I am asking that you convene a Special Grand Jury and that the federal authorities are contacted and work in conjunction with us.

Attached is a Memorandum that sets forth the applicable law concerning the situation and evidence that I have brought to your attention.

Please contact me by December 22, 2007 with your response.

Sincerely,

Dan Severson
State Representative

Dear Honorable Sir,

Please demand an investigation into the corrupt judges Representative Severson informed you of.

As a civil rights activist and citizen of Minnesota, I am very concerned about corruption that is flourishing in our state, county and city governments. My blog
"A Democracy", is a sespool of allegations of corruption by government officials. Please take the time to read through my blog and see for yourself the multitude's of citizens who complain of unfair treatment at the hands of government officials here in Minnesota.

Respectfully,

Bob Johnson
Saint Paul Citizen

Dear Governor Pawlenty,

Call for a grand jury investigation into the corruption Representive Severson wrote you about.
Many people are losing faith in our local government. I have been reading Bob Johnson's blog "A Democracy" http://ademocracy.blogspot.com/ for over a year and something has to be done about all these allegations of corruption by judges and city officials here.

Sincerely,

Cinnamon Johnson

The first thing the aide to Pawlenty is going to know is that the writers of these letters are not a threat. The structure is not correct, the spelling is bad and the focus is vague.

Good luck getting notice. Tim Pawlenty is the top politician in the state and many of these judges he appointed or vetted while Majority Leader in the House.

You are essentially telling him his appointees suck, and his vetting was faulty. Any action he takes on this will reflect negativly on himself. It won't happen.

9:26, Your full of shit!

What you are trying to say is the Governor doesn't listen to the common man. "He does"!

I have been invited to several "VIP" invitation only events with Governor Pawlenty and I sir am a common man.

ALSO, the Judges of concern have been around a lot longer than Pawlenty. Get a LIFE, and stop trying to spread your false BS here.

You are only seeking to destroy the unity of the people who have united here. IT WON'T HAPPEN!

Sorry to underestimate your importance Bob. I didn't know you were such a fan of Pawlenty. I don't know, maybe those personal invitations cloud your viewpoint.

I said he's a politician and will not act on anything that goes against his agenda or, brings into questions his previous decisions. It makes him look weak. Vice President wannabes can't look weak.

You know LBJ used to have his political enemies over to the White House for a lavish dinner or drinks right before he crucified them at the stake.

They never saw it coming.

I agree with 9:29......there's no politician in ths state going to rock the boat as far as corruption goes. Thye are all too interested in protecting their little country club. Whatever we think just doesn't matter.

Hopefully, you don't run into the ol' government runaround.

It goes like this:

We are NOT RESPONSIBLE!
Talk to _____, THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE!!!!!

Then when you talk to the next group, they give you the identical line. You can go around in circles forever.

Regretfully, I tend to agree with your position that Pawlenty is a politician and will not act on anything that goes against his agenda.

This statement is the root of the problem. We have a politician as Governor, and not a statesman.

My question to Nancy,

If you feel this way, why did you have me waste my time posting this request?

I say,

well 9:49, I also have an invitation to a Honoray Dinner for Congress woman Betty McCollum. And others. I keep the invitations in a folder for keep sakes. It was an HONOR to receive these invitations. I haven't gone to a SINGLE event. Here is why-

I cover local down and dirty news. I am NOT making pals with anyone! I may have to write something negative about somebody I grew to like and that would pain me.
