I thought it was ‘the gays that wanted to get married’ who were undermining traditional marriage.
Seems in Minnesota all it takes to undermine the institution of marriage is a middle-aged woman with a thing for young men.
This story is just a reminder of the sham that is conservative politics when it comes to the morality play they want to star in when it comes to gay marriage and civil rights. Listen to what we say, and ignore what we do.
Before we get to the guts of this story let me make clear that Amy Koch, who is is married with one child, was one of the proponents of Minnesota’s shameful and utterly disgusting 2012 anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment.
Oh, and she likes to mess around on her husband.
Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch resigned her post Thursday after she was confronted by GOP Senate leaders about allegations of an inappropriate relationship with a Senate staffer, according to high level State Capitol sources.
Those sources confirmed that four Republican Senators held an emergency meeting with Koch Wednesday night, after multiple Senate staffers reported the possible improper conduct.
“Not fun, but we did what I think all of us feel is necessary and appropriate give the circumstances,” said Assistant Majority Leader Sen. Dave Senjem
GOP leaders won’t name the male staffer alleged to be involved with Senator Koch, but said he continues to work at the Senate. Because it is now a legal matter, they’ve turned over the complaints to the Secretary of the Senate for review.
“We don’t want the Minnesota senate to have that kind of work environment for our employees,” said Deputy Majority Leader Sen. Geoff Michel. “And so that’s why we felt we had to act.”
In a letter to Senate Republicans Thursday, Koch resigned as Senate Majority Leader and said she will not run for re-election next year.
