ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – New Senate Majority Leader Dave Senjem says he doesn’t plan to file an ethics complaint against Sen. Amy Koch or other senators in connection with events leading up to Koch’s abrupt resignation as majority leader last year.

Senjem made his comments Thursday at a legislative preview session. The Rochester Republican says the scandal was unfortunate but is in the past.

Koch left the majority leader job in December and later admitted it was because she had an inappropriate relationship with a Senate employee. Her deputy leader at the time, Sen. Geoff Michel, later admitted to making inaccurate statements about when he first learned of the relationship.

Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk says at minimum he expects public apologies from Koch and Michel for damaging the Senate’s reputation.
