Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent Statement on Senator Jensen Golfing During Committee Hearing

SAINT PAUL, MN— Thursday, Republican State Senator Scott Jensen was seen golfing during a Health and Human Services Finance committee hearing while the committee discussed their omnibus bill. A statement from Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent is below.

“Senator Jensen’s decision to golf during an important committee hearing was completely inappropriate. His actions were disrespectful not only to Minnesotans but to all of our Senate colleagues and staff who are working incredibly hard to respond to the public health emergency we are currently in,” said Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent. “It is disappointing that the irresponsible actions of one member could reflect poorly on the entire Senate body. I am calling on Majority Leader Gazelka to immediately denounce this behavior.”
