Leader Kent’s statement on Representative John Thompson

After the recent alleged reports of a pattern of domestic abuse by Representative John Thompson, Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent (DFL-Woodbury) released the following statement.

“Recent reports alleging a pattern of abusive behavior by Representative John Thompson, including multiple incidents that occurred in front of young children, are deeply disturbing. In no way is this kind of behavior ever acceptable, and it goes against the foundation of the DFL and the shared values we fight for at the Capitol.  Elected officials should be held to the highest standards, and I call on Representative Thompson to resign.”
