Newman, who is from Hutchinson and sits on the influential Senate Health and Human Services Committee, said he had first heard of the email early Tuesday morning. “It’s just an error, that’s all,” he said.He first heard of the email Tuesday morning? Really?
I knew about it around noon on Monday, when a Startribune reporter asked me questions about the MNA endorsement and if any donations from the MNA followed. The same Startribune reporter had stated that he called to seek comment from the Senator on Thursday, several times on Friday, and several times on Monday.
Again, I find it very difficult to believe that Senator Newman didn't know about this email for 5 days.
It's time for Senator Newman to come clean...his constituents in SD 18 are waiting.
