Gov. Dayton Calls for Minnesota Senator to Resign

Sen. Dan Schoen

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton says a state senator accused of sexual harassment should resign.

State Sen. Dan Schoen is accused of behavior ranging from unwanted attention to women to physically grabbing a woman from behind. The online news outlet MinnPost first reported the allegations late Wednesday.

Dayton says the reports are “totally unacceptable” and that Schoen should resign immediately.

The party’s leader in the Senate, Tom Bakk, also says Schoen should step down.

Schoen says the allegations are false.
