MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota spokesperson, Rachael Grooms, issued the following statement:
“The lack of response from Lori Swanson and her campaign team regarding accusations of sexual harassment against Rick Nolan’s staff member and close friend is inexcusable, and a direct reflection on the type of leadership she would display if elected as Minnesota’s next governor.
Nolan’s failure to deal with sexual harassment on his staff proves that he does not represent the morals of Minnesotans and should not be running for public office. Lori Swanson should denounce this behavior and all forms of harassment. Minnesotans deserve to know whether Lori finds it acceptable for her running mate to hold this dismissive attitude towards sexual harassment.”
