Saint Paul, MN. – Rep. Jamie Becker-Finn released the following statement in response to MinnPost’s reporting of alleged sexual harassment and assault committed by Senator Dan Schoen:
“In my job as a prosecutor, it has been my privilege to work with crime victims and their advocates. Their stories and experiences have impacted me deeply. It is important that we believe and support those who are victimized, and recognize that women are disproportionately impacted by sexual harassment and violence.
“I join Senate Leadership and others in calling for Sen. Schoen’s resignation. Ultimately, Sen. Schoen is the one responsible for his actions. I will continue to support Lindsey, Erin and all others who have been negatively affected by sexual harassment and violence.”
Rep. Jamie Becker-Finn, a DFLer, serves all or part of Roseville, Vadnais Heights, Gem Lake, Shoreview and Little Canada in the Minnesota House. She is a member of the House Public Safety Policy and Finance Committee.
