Fargo Diversion Authority has tried desperately to work its magic and convince lawmakers that a multi-billion dollar development subsidy is a flood protection plan. Fargo’s Diversion Authority leaders have nothing up their sleeves and produce only opposition with their inept and arrogant sleight of hand.
