Happy Monday everyone! What a beautiful weekend it was. Let's get right back to it.
1. Corruption at the White House
The great Rachel Maddow is my spirit guide. She leads me to the stories that matter. Last Friday, she reminded me about Florida's Attorney General Pam Bondi. Remember, when Bondi was going to investigate fraudulent activity at Trump University but then didn't after receiving a check from the Trump Foundation? Now one of Bondi's top lawyers has joined the Department of Education. Ugh.

Call your representative and senators and ask them why this corruption is being swept under the rug. At any other time, this would have been front page news for weeks.
2. Local Affairs
I swear, politics has become a horrible game of Red Light, Green Light. I feel the minute I turn my back to focus on something, all the other things sneak up behind me. Well, "RED LIGHT" legislators!
Lots of important things are happening in Minnesota right now. Take a moment today to call your state representative, senator, or Governor Dayton about the topics that cause your heart to flutter. Here is a good overview of the big ones: https://maryturck.com/2017/04/23/just-say-no-final-month-for-mn-legislature/
