Gov Dayton is very generous.

He earned $334,000 last year and donated $1,000 to charity.

I wish I could donate that much to support the needy.

Sooo if a middle class family makes $100K they should donate $250/year?

Man I can live with that, saving about $2K per year. That is a nice vacation.

Thanks Gov, I knew there was some sense behind those goofy eyes.

In 2009, a year that Dayton was running for re-election, he donated almost 16% to charity.

In 2012, a non-election year, he donated less than 1/3 of 1% to charity.

Here, Gov GoogleyEyes...let me spell the word for you:

A thousand dollars is NOTHING on a $334K income, and he probably wrote it all off on his income taxes.

Three grand isn't even 1%, but I would have given him at least some credit if he had donated that much, but it's NOTHING to BRAG ABOUT.

TEN GRAND would have been 3%, then I would say that he was being generous, but not TOO generous. So ONE MEASLY PERCENT is a JOKE.

Do you tip your waitresses at a 1% rate?
