In the Sunday issue of the St. Cloud Times there appeared an article about an Otsego man who took the government for $53,000 by filing fraudulent tax returns.

Roland Chapaye Pour, 35, plead guilty Oct. 19. Pour, a tax preparer, filed 13 false U.S. Individual Income Tax returns between Jan. 24 and March 9, 2005, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release.

What you didn't find in the St. Cloud Times either that day or since that day was the story of a local legislator who owns a bank, sits on the board of directors for said bank, and who took the government for $28 million by running that bank into the ground and forcing the federal government to bail it out. So, while some insist on slamming the Star Tribune for running the story but then subtracting mention of Kiffmeyer (apparently because there isn't enough space on the internet for the word Kiffmeyer), just realize that the regional newspaper near her district chose not to publish anything at all.
