MN Republicans register ethics complaint against Democrat senator who they claim benefited from relationship with nonprofit --to the tune of $800K.
"State Senate Republicans on Wednesday announced an ethics complaint against a powerful Democrat, questioning whether he and his wife were among the beneficiaries of a Minneapolis nonprofit that spent more than $800,000 in taxpayer dollars on trips and personal expenses. At question is Sen. Jeff Hayden's spot on the board of Community Action Minneapolis, which was found in an audit to have misused state grants meant to help low-income people in Minneapolis. Hayden's wife, Terri, served on the board as his designee." -- Kyle Potter, Associated Press
