GLEN STUBBE, STAR TRIBUNE

DFL House Speaker Melissa Hortman said she will wait until court proceedings involving Rep. John Thompson wrap up before any further action against the St. Paul Democrat.

House Speaker Melissa Hortman said Wednesday that she will wait until the end of court proceedings involving Rep. John Thompson before taking further action against the St. Paul Democrat who has refused her call to step down.

Hortman, DFL-Brooklyn Park, is among a wide cast of DFL state party leaders - including Gov. Tim Walz - urging Thompson to resign amid reports of multiple domestic violence allegations documented by three police departments from 2003-2011.

Thompson has rejected such calls and disputed the allegations.
