MN Rep. Jim Knoblach ends campaign ahead of MPR abuse allegations story
Knoblach's daughter, Laura, alleges that the prominent legislator inappropriately touched her for most of her life, behavior she confided to close friends, family and authority figures at her school and church for more than a decade.

She said she decided to tell her story to MPR News after exhausting other means to hold her father accountable, including a 2017 investigation by local law enforcement. No charges resulted. She provided MPR News with extensive documentation about her attempts to get help.

Knoblach sounds like a disgusting creep. I hate hearing about this kind of abuse.

Rep. Knoblach represents District 14B and I live in 14A. In Minnesota we have two representatives per senate district but, of course, we can only vote for the representative in our sub-district.

Knoblach was the most vulnerable state house member in the entire Sixth Congressional District, the most conservative of the eight congressional districts in the state. Every single state senator and state representative in the entire Sixth is a Republican. He was vulnerable only because of a 14k student body university located entirely within his district. Last election he won by only a few dozen votes after having received $100k in support from the Koch brothers during that campaign. The state donation limit is $1k so the Koch money was spent independently of his campaign.

A month or so ago we donated the state limit to his DFL opponent (a former student of my wife's). We donated nothing to our sub-district's DFL state representative's campaign because he has zero chance of defeating the Republican incumbent.

This is certainly not the way I want to see a candidate I'm backing win an election.

His daughter should have gone to the FBI when this started.

Not a federal crime - nor even a state crime. Like Al Franken's touching women's buttocks, Knoblach did nothing criminal.

I was being sarcastic. Like Trump thinking a 15-year-old should go to the authorities, this girl was probably much, much younger.
