A growing number of Minnesota Republican legislators and other party leaders are calling on state party chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan to resign immediately after a top GOP donor was indicted last week on sex trafficking charges.

Minnesota GOP strategist and donor Anton "Tony" Lazzaro, 30, was arrested Thursday and faces federal charges of recruiting and sex trafficking minors. Also Thursday, 19-year-old Gisela Castro Medina, chairwoman of the University of St. Thomas College Republicans, was arrested in Florida on allegations of aiding Lazzaro.

Lazzaro, who remained in the Sherburne County jail awaiting his first court hearing Monday, has ties to many prominent state Republicans, including Carnahan, who recently co-hosted a podcast with Lazzaro.
