State Sen. Nicole Mitchell off committee assignments while case under review

DFL state Sen. Nicole Mitchell, of Woodbury, who was arrested in an alleged burglary this month, will be relieved of her committee work and removed from DFL caucus meetings while her case is under review in the courts and the Senate, DFL Senate Majority Leader Erin Murphy said in a statement Sunday.

"This is a tragic situation, and there are still questions that need to be answered," Murphy said.

Mitchell is, however, expected to participate in votes, DFL Assistant Majority Leader Sen. Nick Frentz told the Star Tribune Sunday morning. There is no rule prohibiting Mitchell from voting while the ethics complaint and legal issues are pending, though Senate Republicans object.
