Mark Dayton on meager charitable giving: "I'm disappointed in myself"

Asked yesterday about his 2012 giving (or lack thereof), Dayton went the self-flagellation route.
"I pride myself on my charitable giving and I'm disappointed in myself," Dayton said during a news conference (via the Star Tribune). "I totaled it up and noticed I had fallen off, so I will remedy that."
Considering he donated nearly $27,000 to charity back in 2009 (while he was running for governor), we'd imagine local charities and nonprofits are salivating about the news that Dayton plans to step up his giving during this tax cycle.
