A grassroots group known as Citizens for the Rule of Law filed a lawsuit against the Minnesota Legislature for violating the Minnesota constitution. The lawsuit charges that the legislature gave themselves unlawful raises, and hid these raises within the per Diem increases. Members of the legislature already are reimbursed for housing and travel, and get an additional "spiff" for "per Diem" (daily) expenses. Last session, without public hearing, the legislature increased the per Diem amount that is given to each member of the legislature.

The group of citizens attempted to bring their concerns directly to the Minnesota Legislature, but contend they were ignored. Frustrated, they filed a lawsuit against the Minnesota Legislature, demanding that the Legislative Branch comply with the Minnesota constitution.

It might be a joke , but at least someone somewhere is trying to stand up to these jerks rather than just rolling over once again.

These legislators are jerks because they LEGALLY take per diems?

I'll bet my left you-know-what that Nancy Lazaryan is behind this.

Just like Pawlenty didn't raise taxes (only jacked us on super high fees), the legislature did not approve a pay raise for themselves, it was only an increase in the per diems.

Get a clue.

5:11, didn't you watch the video? Eric and Tom are behind this crap.

Eric and Tom were the kids in school who continually disrupted the class and were made to sit in the back of the room or the corner.

They are still angry about being segregated from the rest of the class!

So, you finally admit that dissent, different viewpoints and opposing viewpoints are not welcome and are disruptive.

Thanks for being honest.

Eric and Tom already have won in the U.S. SUPREME COURT, and are behind the citizens that have brought the lawsuit.
