Yesterday it was revealed that Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, attempted to pull a “do you know who I am?” move on Attorney General Lori Swanson hoping to end Swanson’s aggressive public attack on the wrongdoings of Accretive Health.
But Swanson didn’t budge. She finished it with Accretive, giving the company 90 days to get out of town, fining them 2.5 million dollars, and barring them from doing business in Minnesota for six years.
Swanson continues to prove she is an aggressive defender of the citizens of Minnesota, and an advocate for fairness and the common good. It must be really tough for those right-wingers who say Lori Swanson is more committed to the Democratic Party than to the citizens and the laws of Minnesota, when thyy see her not only ignore a Democratic political heavyweight, but also to step up the fight and accept nothing less than the death penalty for an immoral organization.
I’m not sure if Lori Swanson’s has higher political aspirations, if she does, I predict when Governor Dayton retires in 2014 or 2018, it is going to be a tough race between Lori Swanson and Paul Thissen for the DFL nomination for Governor. I like them both.
