Minnesota Republican gubernatorial hopeful Tom Emmer has tapped former MN Supreme Court Chief Justice Eric Magnuson as a litigator for his recount team. We spoke to MinnPost’s Jay Weiner today about Emmer’s decision to bring Magnuson on board. Among other things, Weiner called Magnuson “the anti-Tony Sutton.”Here’s a video of Magnuson from March where he was the keynote speaker at the 2010 Minnesota Coalition on Government Information, Finnegan Freedom of Information Award Ceremony.
