Strib: Koch meeting took place in Chanhassen

The Star Tribune provides the timeline surrounding the departures of Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch and Senate Communications Director Michael Brodkorb last week.  Here’s an interesting piece of the story with a Carver County twist (emphasis added):

Two sources with direct knowledge of the incident who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the senators held a grinding, emotional, three-hour meeting with Koch at the Minneapolis Club about options. Exhausted, they broke for the night and met again Thursday at a location in Chanhassen.

Sources said on Thursday the senators gave Koch three choices: Deny the allegations, resign as majority leader or face the fact that they would share the allegations with other Senate leaders.

Koch has kept silent since these revelations came out on Friday. Brodkorb, however, has been actively tweeting, and doing so strangely given the sort of allegations swirling.  Here’s an example:

City Pages also uncovered a domestic dispute police call to the Brodkorb residence this summer.  Details here.

Let’s hope these families can find some healing.
