Minnesota House Republicans are calling on Democratic Speaker Melissa Hortman to take swift action, amid reports of domestic abuse by state Representative John Thompson.  Deputy Minority Leader Anne Neu Brindley says Republicans have ethics complaints ready…

…”but ultimately it’s going to take action by Democrats to hold Representative Thompson accountable.   We can’t do that on our own.”

Neu Brindley says the governor would have to call a special session for a vote to remove Thompson from office.  Both Walz and House Speaker Hortman have called on Thompson to step down.  Thompson said Sunday he will not resign.
