MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement regarding Speaker Hortman’s removal of Rep. Grossell from the House Public Satety Committee:

“Yesterday, Speaker Hortman chose to remove a member with 12 years of law enforcement experience from the House Public Safety Committee purely for political gain. It’s beyond hypocritical for Democrats to support removing a Representative, and his expertise, from his committee assignment while Congresswoman Omar remains on the Foreign Affairs Committee. It is time for Minnesota Democrats to decide: Will they choose to support the removal of Omar from her committee assignment due to her recent offensive and anti-Semitic words or actions? Or, do Democrats only support taking action when it’s against a Republican?”
