Democratic Senator Dan Schoen from Saint Paul Park and Republican Representative Tony Cornish from Vernon Center are both resigning from the Minnesota Legislature amid allegations of sexual harassment. Schoen called the accusations “either completely false” or “taken far out of context” and his attorney says they’ll provide documentation Wednesday to back that up. Meanwhile Cornish issued a statement saying, “As a proud former peace officer and longtime champion for public safety, I am forced to face the reality that I have made some at the Capitol feel uncomfortable, and disrespected. To those individuals and specifically the unnamed lobbyist , I sincerely apologize for my unwelcome behavior. I would also like to apologize to God, my family, my constituents, and friends for the mistakes I have made.” Republican leaders of the Minnesota House say they asked Cornish to resign, as did Democratic leaders of the state Senate. Top lawmakers and Governor Mark Dayton have pledged to take steps to ensure the Capitol is a safe and respectful work environment for all.
