DFLer: Ban “preferential admission” to public stadiums for elected officials

DFL Rep. John Lesch wants to ban elected officials from getting preferential tickets to public stadiums, but his idea isn’t a reaction to the MFSA scandal.

Patrick Condon in the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

State Rep. John Lesch, DFL-St.Paul, said the legislation is in response to learning that House Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, attended a Vikings game at U.S. Bank Stadium and was spotted in a suite belonging to Taylor Corporation, a Minnesota company with holdings that include the Star Tribune.
