It’s amazing that 2 men with legitimate legacies would throw them away for a politician like Keith Ellison. Still, that’s precisely what Skip Humphrey and Walter Mondale did in this counterpoint op-ed.

It proves beyond a doubt that there aren’t any moderates left in the DFL. Humphrey and Mondale open their counterpoint op-ed by saying “The Star Tribune Editorial Board erred in its decision not to endorse in the Minnesota attorney general’s race (“Two deeply flawed AG candidates,” Nov. 2). As two former Minnesota attorneys general, we can say with confidence that Keith Ellison is well-prepared to fulfill the important duties of this essential constitutional office and is the only reasonable choice for Minnesota voters in this election.”

Here’s a question for Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale: What makes Ellison “well-prepared”? His frequent support for cop-killers?

Keith Ellison has always told Minnesotans exactly where he stands, and has acted on his word. He has been a strong advocate for equal opportunity and justice for all in Congress. He has the legal experience necessary to lead this public interest law firm. Over a 16-year career of civil rights and defense law, Ellison headed the state’s premier nonprofit public defense organization, the Legal Rights Center, for five years. He has real experience trying dozens of cases before the court and juries, experience that Mr. Wardlow lacks. Keith Ellison has the right priorities for the office, pledging to protect consumers and workers, and to enforce Minnesota’s strong civil rights laws to protect the rights of all.

Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale, is it a Minnesota priority to file lawsuit after lawsuit against the federal government because you disagree with a president? Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale, is it a Minnesota priority to support cop-killers like Assata Shakur and Sharif Willis? Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale, is it a Minnesota priority to you to support a man credibly accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend?

As far as I’m concerned, Mssrs. Humphrey and Mondale are just typical politicians who put the DFL first and Minnesota last. How disgraceful.

    All that matters to democrats is power so they’ll do and say anything to get and retain that power no matter the candidate. I’m not sure what the democrats would have to do for their loyal minions to stop blindly following this morally and ethically bankrupt party.

    Wardlow now can go back to his hate group.

  • Chad Q says:

    Yeah so the real hater can take over the AG’s office.

  • Gary Gross says:

    If the SPLC is the determiner of who’s a hate group, I’ll proudly call myself a hater. The SPLC is a despicable, unprincipled, organization. They’ve essentially labeled anyone who believes in the Bible a hate group.

    I hope Ellison is quickly exposed as the hater he’s always been. If the DFL wants to continue defending that dirtbag, then I hope for their quick demise.

    Hopefully this is a wood stake through the heart for Wardlow. He’s a ghoul.

  • Gary Gross says:

    I’ve met Doug. If you call him a ghoul, then you have to call me one, too.

  • eric z. says:

    Sorry you feel that way, Gary. You’re backing a throwback.

  • Gary Gross says:

    I’m supporting a principled, Godly man. You aren’t. God hasn’t changed. 25 years ago, Keith Ellison would’ve been rejected everywhere in the US except in SF. Now, Walter Mondale trashes his legacy by saying he’s prepared for the job. Since when is a man who still supports cop-killers qualified to be in law enforcement?

    He’s a skunk.
