Mankato Free Press gives Hatch the 'thumbs down'

Mike Hatch got slammed by yet another newspaper in Minnesota this past weekend.

The Mankato Free Press blasted for his ignorance. To Hatch, anything bad in Minnesota is Pawlenty's fault.

Thumbs down

To Attorney General Mike Hatch for putting politics into the serious issue of identity theft.

The Minnesota Financial Crimes Task Force recently discovered that hundreds of identity theft cases were probably aided by the legal sale of the state driver'’s license database.

Hatch immediately blamed the Pawlenty Administration for the release of the information and the rise in identity theft crime. Hatch may as well blame the DFL Senate and other DFL governors and legislators who'’ve been in office as long as that information has been made publicly available for sale - which is years.

The data has been classified as public for years. It'’s political hacksmanship to say Pawlenty's at fault for the identity theft cases. (Source:
