Moriarty says Walz criticized her because she's 'queer.' His supporters call the attack shameful.

Her comments came amid the decision to drop charges against Trooper Londregan

Hennepin County Attorney Mary Moriarty alleged publicly again Tuesday that DFL Gov. Tim Walz treats her differently than her male predecessor because she's a queer woman, a claim swiftly rebutted by the governor and his allies.

Moriarty initially made the comment to a Star Tribune reporter on Sunday as she revealed that she would drop the murder and manslaughter charges against State Trooper Ryan Londregan in the shooting of Ricky Cobb II last summer during a traffic stop.

The top prosecutor in the state's most populous county talked at length about her critics, including the governor, saying they are delegitimizing the system.
