Tinklenberg said Wetterling assured him many times that she wasn't going to get into the congressional race this year. His wife, Terri, even gave her Senate campaign $500.

"We find it a little ironic that the money we contributed may now be used against us. It's disappointing."Homespun grassroots energy, or old-school DFL political sanctimoniousness?
