Neither Day, nor his staff has answered the email. (See data privacy request sent to Minnesota DFL that has gone unanswered by clicking here – Google Drive Doc).

Corey Day, former executive director of Impact Minnesota and current director of the Minnesota DFL and Council on Black Minnesotans board member has been charged with his second DWI as reported by Minnesota’s select reporting outlet the Star Tribune.
“Corey Day, who has been with the party since October 2011, was still in Hennepin County jail late Monday afternoon, (Star Tribune).
The newspaper also reports, “According to a police report, police were called to Lyndale Avenue S. and W. 26th Street in Minneapolis Saturday night on a report of an accident involving a possible drunk driver and found two parked vehicles had been struck. Day, 36, was arrested and booked for drunken driving. According to public records, Day pleaded guilty to a charge of drunken driving in 2009.
This brings up many issues currently being discussed in political circles in the Twin Cities. How is it that Corey Day, who admittedly told IBNN that Impact Minnesota was working in favor of then candidate Mark Dayton who was running for Minnesota governor while running a supposed non-profit organization commissioned for voter education. Also, Governor Dayton’s has yet to appoint any African-American Republicans or conservatives to the Council on Black Minnesota’s, which is “stocked” with left-leaning pundits who some say are short in vision and process.
IBNN hopes Mr. Day will check into Turning Point, Inc. to get the assistance he needs to battle the debilitating illness of alcoholism.
