Attorney says Koch, staffer were intimate

MINNEAPOLIS – An attorney for a fired Senate staffer confirmed Wednesday that his client had an intimate relationship with former Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch.

Attorney Phil Villaume said the admission is in a notice of claim he filed with the state as part of potential litigation by the staffer, Michael Brodkorb. An affair between the two had been widely suspected after her sudden resignation in December and his subsequent firing, but hadn’t been confirmed before Wednesday, when the attorney talked to The Associated Press.
