Hmmm... Is this the same Peter McLaughlin who never distanced himself from the blatently false attack ads brought out by the Police Federation meant to play on people's fear? Is this the same Peter McLaughlin who took money from mostly northern Hennepin County based bars interested in a repeal of the smoking ban, changed his vote, annd called it a coincidence? The same Peter McLaughlin who critisized RT Rybak for accepting contrbutions from individuals with ties to companies who do business with the City of Minneapolis, yet he himself took money from the companies themselves? The same Peter McLaughlin who's personal integrity has been compromised a few times by affairs and divorces, yet decided to open a personal attack on RT by questioning him about sending his children to private school? Substance and Integrity? As the character Inigo Montoya so aptly put it in the movie Princess Bride: "I do not think that means what you think it means."
