When Minnesota’s Republican Senate Caucus hired Michael Brodkorb as their communications director, they may not have expected it would end with
a lawsuitand multiple retirements. Yet while those specific results may have been unpredictable, a person of reasonable judgment could have figured that it would not end well.
Even so, it is fortunate that then-Majority Leader Amy Koch was not exercising reasonable judgment when Brodkorb was hired. The incident has been good for the GOP and for democracy.
