No news on fired Senate staffer crash

Posted: Updated:

MENDOTA HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) -- Hospital officials are releasing no new information about a fired Minnesota Senate aide critically injured in a highway crash near St. Paul.

Thirty-eight-year-old Michael Brodkorb was taken to Regions Hospital after his car crashed Wednesday night. A Regions spokeswoman confirms Brodkorb was being treated Thursday, but says the family has asked that no information be released.

State Patrol spokesman Lt. Eric Roeske says Brodkorb's injuries were non-life-threatening as of Wednesday night. Roeske says the patrol has received no updated information and does not expect anything further.

Brodkorb was an aide to Senate Republicans and filed a lawsuit last year after he was fired over his affair with then-Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch. Brodkorb alleges he was a victim of discrimination because of his gender and had his personal privacy violated.
