Yet Another “Family Values” Republican Caught Cheating


Another Republican ‘Family Values’ Politician Quits Over Affair

Protecting the sanctity of marriage
 Charles Johnson

Minnesota Senate majority leader Amy Koch has been a determined foe of same-sex marriage, pushing a state constitutional amendment to ban it outright. According to Koch and the other Republicans touting this amendment, its purpose is to “protect the sanctity of marriage.”

But Koch, like so many other “family valuesGOP politicians caught cheating, doesn’t seem to apply the same standard to the sanctity of her own marriage: Sen. Koch quit over ‘inappropriate’ relationship.

Michel and other senators said they had heard from several staffers over the past two weeks that Koch was having a relationship with one of her direct subordinates. They said that when they confronted Koch on Wednesday night, she didn’t admit to the relationship or deny it.

“Her response to the conversation was …’I think I need to consider resigning,’ ” said Assistant Senate Majority Leader David Hann, R-Eden Prairie.

However, Koch gave no indication she would do so right away.

Not long after the news conference, Michel announced that Michael Brodkorb, who was Koch’s powerful communications chief, was no longer employed as a Senate staffer, effective Friday.

Senate leaders didn’t return calls late Friday to determine whether Brodkorb’s resignation was related to Koch’s.
