Fired Senate Staffer Makes Threats 16 Mar 12

A fired Minnesota state Senate staffer is threatening to expose adulterous affairs by other legislators as part of a potential lawsuit over his firing. Michael Brodkorb was fired in December over an affair with his boss, then-Majority Leader Amy Koch. Brodkorb says he has a gender discrimination claim because female staffers who had affairs with male legislators weren’t fired. He laid out his legal strategy this week, and will reportedly seek more than a half-million dollars if he moves forward with suing the state.
