Senate To Review Ethics Complaint Against Hutchinson GOPer

ST. PAUL (AP) — The state Senate’s Subcommittee on Ethical Conduct will review a complaint by several Democratic senators over a Republican colleague’s e-mail saying he wouldn’t meet with his election rival’s supporters.

The committee meets Wednesday to review the complaint, which accuses Sen. Scott Newman of Hutchinson of breaking Senate rules and endangering the Senate’s reputation. The e-mail sent last month by Newman’s legislative assistant rejected a request to meet with nurses from the Minnesota Nurses Association, which endorsed his opponent.

The message said Newman would not meet with groups that donated to or backed his rival. Newman has since apologized, said the message was a mistake and that it doesn’t reflect his policy on meetings.
