      this was said by Pawlenty to a guardian ad litem (kids advocate) named David Strand in a private interview.  Also present was Andy Dawkins (I believe a MN representative).  

      Strand published the remark.  Pawlenty's attorney emphatically denied the quote and pretty much said cease and desist from further publication.

      So-- no video, no on-the-record interview with any sort of journalist.  And therefore--easy to deny.  

      None of which makes for great ammunition-- at least not the kind that holds up against what is sure to be serious pushback. Sadly.

      Anyone have further info on this?-- all I did was a very quick google, hope there's something more substantial.
