One Response to “You Choose – Election 2008”

  1. Dump Hedlund Says:

    Check out the article in the St. Paul Pioneer Press on October 21about Supreme Court candidate Deborah Hedlund.

    1. In my opinion, Hedlund is a BIGOT. She replies to an e-mail that is titled “Can a Muslim be a Good American?” which lists ten reasons why the answer is “no” by writing back “Matt, we speak the same language.”

    2. In my opinion, Hedlund is an IDIOT. She hit “reply all” when she sent her message of hate.

    3. In my opinion, Hedlund is a LIAR. She told reporters that she had not read the bigoted e-mail or its subject line when she sent it.

    Minnesotans should not vote for a judicial candidate who is a bigot, an idiot, and a liar. Dump Hedlund!
