Defending Gov Pawlenty’s Redirection Of Veteran Plate Funds


Commissioner of Veterans Affairs Michael Pugliese defends Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty’s decision to use funding from the sale of veteran’s license plates to fund an employee of the Governor’s office. Pugliese testified that Lee Buckley who works for the Governor was paid by the funds for doing outreach work to veterans. Pugliese says 25% of Buckley’s time was spent working as a Special Faith Advisor for the Department of Veterans Affairs, not the Governor’s office.
