ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Fired MinnesotaSenate aide Michael Brodkorb has denied violating policies or committing misconduct as he seeks to reverse a decision costing him unemployment benefits.

Brodkorb’s position was disclosed Thursday during an appeal hearing with an administrative judge. The hearing didn’t delve into the relationship he admitted having with former Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch, which cost Brodkorb his job as communications chief for the GOP caucus and Koch her leadership post.

No immediate decisions were made. Brodkorb was terminated from his $90,000 a year job late last year after reports of an affair surfaced.

According to a record read by the judge during the telephone hearing, Brodkorb filled out a form where he said he was appealing because there was “no violation of any internal Senate policy. No employee misconduct.”
