John Lesch tweets Pawlenty impeachment talk

DFL state Rep. John Lesch could hardly contain his excitement yesterday on Twitter.

Hearing the Minnesota Supreme Court had ruled that Gov. Tim Pawlenty had overstepped his authority by unilaterally balancing the state budget, Lesch tweeted: "Talk in the Capitol hallways is of impeachment for Governor's violation of laws entrusted to him. All it takes is a majority of the House."

Lesch, of St. Paul, is in his fourth term in the House. We have a call in to Lesch's office to find out if he's serious about the impeachment business.
