Hashtag fight! Luke Hellier vs. Blois Olson
Folks, we have a battle over $99 and a political speed-dating event that has turned into a hashtag war (Hashtags, in case you aren't up on the Twitter lingo, serve the same pries as tags in blogs, allowing users to filter for a specific conversation thread).
bloisolson @lukehellier is Pawlenty going to go back an modify his gubernatoral reports for President? #stopthesilliness
bloisolson @lukehellier how about all the trips before the PAC paid for by gubernatorial funds?
lukehellier @bloisolson Isn't that why Pawlenty is forming a PAC?
lukehellier @bloisolson And Pawlenty isn't currently running for another office. Those are two significant differences. #playbytherulesrybak
bloisolson @lukehellier #youseriouslybelievethatorisitmorefunforpartisansake?
lukehellier @bloisolson I'd have to check but I would assume all of TPaw's travel was paid for by the groups he spoke too. #Ireallyenjoylonghashtags
lukehellier @bloisolson I guess it's probably a different story if last night's travel for @mayorrtrybak was paid for by the Rochester DFL?
lukehellier The law clearly states if a candidate spends in excess of $100 they must file a campaign committee: http://trunc.it/2rb1u
bloisolson @lukehellier are you implying that noTPAW? guber $$ went to natl visibility to push pres bid #againthisisthesillystuffthatdoesntmatter
lukehellier @bloisolson My understanding was that any of TPaw's national travel was paid for by the groups he spoke to.
lukehellier @bloisolson I don't think it's totally silly. The law clearly states if you spend over $100 you must file.
