Olbermann labels Minnesota lawmaker ‘worst person’ for cutting off booze
Keith Olbermann slammed the Minnesota Republican Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch on Wednedsay night’s “Worst Persons” segment of Countdown.
Koch was blamed for the political standoff there that has led to Minnesota’s state government shut-down. Because of the shut-down, bars, restaurants and stores in the state are running out of alcoholic beverages because many of them must renew their $20 state-issued alcohol purchasing cards before replenishing inventories.
“This is how bad it is: a state Senator has urged Governor Mark Dayton to use his executive powers to arrange for alcohol sales to continue,” Olbermann noted. “The Senator is a Republican and the Governor is a Democrat.”
