Fired Minn. aide’s lawsuit cites other affairs

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A fired Minnesota Senate operative has made detailed accusations of sexual affairs at the Capitol as part of his federal wrongful termination lawsuit.

Michael Brodkorb has submitted a court filing that lists other lawmakers and staff members who allegedly carried on affairs over the years without losing their jobs.

The list came in a mistaken filing last week by Brodkorb’s attorneys in a case under protective seal. It was put up briefly on a publicly accessible electronic federal courts website, where it was downloaded by The Associated Press.

A hearing in the case was set for Thursday.

Many of the alleged affairs are decades old, most of the accused are no longer at the Capitol and several of those named denied the assertions when contacted by the AP.
