The Matt McNeil Show – December 7, 2022

Hour 1: The Minnesota Reformer reports the Minneapolis police officer who maced protesters in the days after the George Floyd murder is unmasked by court documents. And the efforts the MPD went to to bury this case and the $150,000 workers comp paid to the officer, Samantha Belcourt. Then it’s our national political expert Jeff Stein. Matt and Jeff talk about Warnock beating Walker, Republicans fleeing Trump after Georgia runoff, candidate quality, Trump corp. being found guilty of tax fraud, Trump hiding yet more classified documents and more.

Hour 2: Sewer tours in friendly Fridley! Rural anger and resentment at metro areas. How it’s become a reality for rural Republicans that they subsidize metro areas (even though it’s metros that subsidize rural areas). Friction within the DFL Senate majority of taxing social security benefits.
