Settlement still best option for taxpayers

June 28, 2013
The Journal

We have received notice that we erred in our editorial of Thursday, calling on Senate Republicans to settle with Michael Brodkorb. Brodkorb's suit is against the Minnesota Senate as a whole, and it is DFLers as well as Republicans who are choosing to contest the issue. It was the Senate Rules Committee, headed by Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk (DFL), that voted Wednesday to pay the latest batch of legal bills, and Bakk who said the Senate has a $500,000 fund to use for legal defense. Bakk was quoted as saying he was inclined not to settle out of court, that there was no wrongdoing. His Republican counterpart, agrees, saying, "We did the right thing for the right reasons."
