In this week's Political Insider, Tom Hauser talks with analysts Kathryn Pearson of the University of Minnesota and David Schultz of Hamline University on the news Tuesday that two Minnesota state lawmakers plan to resign amid sexual harassment allegations.
An attorney for State Sen. Dan Schoen confirmed the lawmaker will announce Wednesday he plans to resign. Shortly thereafter, State Rep. Tony Cornish released a statement announcing his intention to resign by Dec. 1.
Both lawmakers have been accused in recent weeks of sexual harassment by multiple women. One of those women, lobbyist Sarah Walker, released a statement of her own following Cornish's announcement saying she was the unidentified lobbyist who had accused Cornish of sexual harassment.
