DFL lawmaker resigns from University of Minnesota post after questions about hiring


September 12, 2019

A top DFL legislator announced Wednesday that he is resigning from a paid fellowship at the University of Minnesota after Republicans raised questions about preferential treatment in filling the post.

Rep. Jamie Long, DFL-Minneapolis, accepted a seven-month research fellowship at the Institute on the Environment’s Energy Transition Lab in July. The $50,000 temporary role was set to end just after the Legislature returns to work in February. He will leave Sept. 20.
