Runaways

This story about two runaway girls hidden by their mother (and maybe a network of anti-Family Court conspiracists) is fascinating.  (More background here.) The Strib is (justifiably) proud of its work here, since it broke the case open back in April.  The best parts of most articles, at least from the point of view of humor value, are the quotes from the mother’s lawyer:

Grazzini-Rucki’s attorney, Michelle MacDonald, criticized the placement of the children in foster care.

“Why are they not living with their mother right now?” MacDonald said.

Grazzini-Rucki, who was arrested in October, is being held in lieu of $1 million bail by Dakota County and housed at the Ramsey County workhouse.

(MacDonald previously ran one of the most epically awful campaigns for office that I have been aware of.)
