Controversy continues to swirl around the state’s Republican Party Chair. Jennifer Carnahan denies any wrongdoing after friend and party donor Anton Lazzaro was indicted last week for sex trafficking. State Senator Roger Chamberlain of Lino Lakes is among the Republicans calling for Carnahan to step down…”She crossed the line, she crossed the line, I want nothing to do with a party that’s failed to address these allegations of sexual harassment, assault, of intimidation and bullying, this is not an organization that anybody should trust.”

Carnahan says she won’t resign and it will be up to party activists to remove her. Carnahan has not responded to several requests for comment.
