In the last few days, a week or so ago, DA Finke and Swift county employees and witnesses spend several days at county expense to travel to Tennessee and represent Swift county in a legal proceeding in which they said...." this Tennesse resident does NOT need a Tennessee conservator under Tennessee law.... and at the same time...yes, this person DOES need a conservator under Tennessee law... " Flying down at Swift County expense were the DA, Finke, a case worker.. and others....not to mention flying down purported witnesses (including a single female)who were never called to testify)... If successful in getting the young man in their company, Finke's "plan," was for the young man to sleep in Finke's room, with only one king size bed.... is anyone else even slightly disturbed by this whole scenario? What did this vacation cost and what was really involved...? Swift county even hired a Tennesse attorney to commence the proceedings and may have paid for finke to qualify as enough of a counsel in Tennessee to participate under her direct supervision control and advice...... is this the best use of tax dollars for Swift County ??

If only Swift county would get a clue and accept the facts that when someone is not a resident of Minnesota, well, they are just not a resident despite Mr. Finke's thinking he is of some greater power of the law. What a waste of our tax dollars. I heard they lost their case, make Finke pay back the money he wasted for this vacation with a single female witness and other Swift County employees! Our taxes shouldn't pay for stupidity!
