Fallout reaches Nolan, Radinovich


ST. PAUL — Rep. Rick Nolan responded Thursday, July 19, to a bombshell report detailing how a longtime legislative staffer continued to be employed by Nolan's 2016 re-election campaign despite having been removed from the congressman's federal office following multiple credible allegations of workplace sexual harassment. "In hindsight," said Nolan, DFL-Minn., in a statement, "the (person) should not have been retained by the campaign committee."

Democratic candidate for the 8th Congressional District Joe Radinovich also tried to distance himself from the report Thursday. Radinovich was Nolan's 2016 campaign manager and hired the staffer at the center of the lengthy report on the political website MinnPost. The report alleges that after being removed from Nolan's legislative office following the emergence of multiple allegations of harassment, staffer Jim Swiderski later slid from Washington, D.C., and into a paid role writing copy for the Nolan re-election campaign.
