Former Minnesota Senate employee Michael Brodkorb is filing suit against the state, the Minnesota Senate and the Secretary of the Senate, stemming from his firing late last year, the Star Tribune reports. Brodkorb was fired after then-Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch stepped down from leadership. She resigned after senators confronted her about the affair she was having with Brodkorb. In his suit, Brodkorb claims he was fired because he is male, "and therefore a member of a protected class based on his gender."
