Bakk responds to Fischbach Constituent Lawsuit

SAINT PAUL, Minn. — Sauk Rapids resident Destiny Dusosky filed a new lawsuit today in Ramsey County District Court after being adversely affected by Lt. Gov. Michelle Fischbach’s unconstitutional attempt to hold both the offices of lieutenant governor and senator during the 2018 Legislative Session. Senate DFL Leader Tom Bakk, DFL-Cook, released the following statement in response:

“Holding two offices in two branches of government at the same time is a clear violation of our Minnesota Constitution. This conflict of interest could call each one of Lt. Gov. Fischbach’s Senate votes into question and undo months of work. It’s time the constituents of Senate District 13 had a clear answer from the judicial branch.

“As I’ve said since December, it’s important for this constitutional question to be resolved. I commend Ms. Dusosky for helping Minnesotans find clarity.”
