Koch resigns as Senate majority leader

| No Comments

Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch resigned Thursday due to allegations of an inappropriate relationship with a male Senate staffer, according to WCCO.

The resignation came after Koch had an emergency meeting with fellow Republicans Wednesday night, according to the Star Tribune.

"Her response to the conversation was ...'I think I need to consider resigning,' " said Assistant Senate Majority Leader David Hann, R-Eden Prairie, reported the Star Tribune.

Koch wrote a letter sent to Senate Republicans Thursday that stated, "We cannot afford a lame duck leader in negotiations next session, which is why I am resigning my position as Majority Leader."
