Here are a few of the money quotes:
- "When this office is in turmoil, as it has been for some time,
Minnesotans should pay attention";
- "The findings [of the Office of the Legislative Auditor] are not
the exoneration that Swanson's office portrays them to be. If anything, they
reinforce that the situation bears scrutiny."
- "Although Swanson may not have crossed legal lines, Nobles' report gives
good reason to doubt that she and her predecessor, Mike Hatch, have been the
best possible stewards of that asset."
- "Swanson is a smart attorney and hard worker. But the state's top legal
job also requires her to be something more: a good manager. It's a different
skill set than that which has carried Swanson far in her career. But it's
something she can -- and must -- learn."
