More on the Line Item Vetoes

Politics in Minnesota has a story up about Pawlenty's line-item vetoes (which included axing the EMFTF). It observes, "Pawlenty restricted many of his vetoes to districts represented by Democrats." I guess this is Pawlenty's idea of bipartisanship, his way of thanking the DFL-controlled legislature for revising its original bonding bill to include Pawlenty's own pet projects, such as the upgrades to the sex offender facility in Moose Lake (remember those news stories about 50" plasma TVs?).
