Mired in debt and struggling to stave off financial collapse, the Republican Party of Minnesota did not pay rent on its St. Paul headquarters for at least the first two months of this year, according to a confidential party memo.

Months after a financial review revealed debt that shocked even party leaders, the delinquent lease payments are just the latest setback for the state GOP, which owes almost $2 million to creditors and which remains under investigation by the state campaign finance board.

State GOP Chairman Pat Shortridge declined to discuss whether the party is currently paying its rent, but an internal budget spreadsheet shared with Executive Committee members provides insight into the party's bleak budget situation.

At the end of February, revenue was 43 percent below projection, a predicament that left accountants unable to negotiate payments on some past-due accounts. The tab also includes credit card debt, maxed-out lines of credit, and checks that were reported as paid but that were never sent to vendors.
