Former Minn. Senate staffer Brodkorb faces DUI, other charges after crash

MINNEAPOLIS — Fired Minnesota Senate aide Michael Brodkorb is being charged with drunken driving and other counts after a January crash that left him injured.

Lilydale City Attorney Thomas Lehmann says Wednesday he has issued a complaint charging Brodkorb with four counts, including fourth-degree driving under the influence, a misdemeanor. He also faces a misdemeanor count of careless driving, and a petty misdemeanor count of wearing no seat belt.

Brodkorb crashed his sport utility vehicle on a highway near St. Paul on Jan. 23 and was hospitalized with serious injuries.

Brodkorb was a communications aide to Senate Republicans. He was fired in 2011 after an affair with then-Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch (kohk).

Brodkorb says he has no comment at this time.
