Letter to Editor: Fire Molnau (#2)

Historically, those at fault for massive government failures, such as the 35W bridge collapse, have the respect and tact to resign. In China, in fact, it's customary for the government official to commit suicide in such situations.

Yet Transportation Commissioner Carol Molnau has the temerity to say of the collapse that took the lives of Minnesotans, "I don't blame people."

I am still angry about how Molnau shirked her responsibility to honor the dead after the collapse, saying breathlessly, "My daughter drove over that bridge every day." As an administrator, she was so disorganized that she did not know the whereabouts of Sophia Pitt, her MnDOT emergency management director.

The Jan. 11 article "Practicality could spare Molnau's ouster by DFLers" indicates that the Minnesota Legislature may let Molnau keep the job for which she has proven her incompetence time and again. If this is the case, I ask the Legislature to offer a recall vote on Molnau to its citizens.

If no one is held accountable for this government failure, then accountability has no meaning.

Sincerely,

Adam Schenck
