Gov. Dayton Goes for Theater Over Substance


Still no budget?  Engage in political theatrics...

Even though he can't keep it off the ballot, Gov. Mark Dayton today vetoed the bill that proposes a constitutional amendment [allowing the people to vote on] marriage to show his strong opposition.

... No previous governor has tried to veto constitutional amendment legislation, Peter Wattson, the governor's counsel said. But he said the veto has no practical effect. -- Twin Cities Pioneer Press
