The 'Personal Responsibility' Party Is Being Evicted In Minnesota

Minnesota GOPers proposed an anti-union bill last month, insisting it would result in more, better-paying jobs. If they'd had union jobs, maybe they wouldn't be getting evicted right now.

Poor Republicans! No one's donating enough money to pay your bills - at least, not enough to feed your delusions of grandeur:

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota's debt-plagued Republican Party has been served with an eviction notice for its party headquarters after failing to pay its rent payments since August.

The party's landlord filed the notice last week in Ramsey County court and it is scheduled to be heard next Tuesday.

Minnesota Republican Party Chairman Pat Shortridge told party members in a memo Thursday that officials are trying to renegotiate the lease to get one that better fits space and cost needs.

You mean, like a mortgage cramdown? MORAL HAZARD!!!! What incentive do you have to pay your bills unless you get kicked to the curb for renting a place that's too big? It's your own damned fault!

The GOP has 21 months remaining on a lease with Hub Properties Trust for space a block from the state Capitol.

Shortridge revealed that the rent hadn't been paid in eight months.

The Minnesota GOP owes hundreds of thousands of dollars to various vendors.
