Name-Calling Minnesota Politician’s Mother Makes Him Apologize

–Minnesota House Majority Leader Matt Dean, speaking on Minnesota Public Radio which he is incidentally attempting to deprive of legacy funding, after calling Neil Gaiman a “pencil-necked little weasel who stole $45,000 from the state of Minnesota” after the author accepted $33,600 of about-to-be-lost legacy funds from a Minnesota library for a speaking engagement which he then donated to charity.
