Controversy over Sen. Julie Frye-Mueller suspension flares up again at state Capitol
Frye-Mueller ally plans to ask for criminal investigation
Thought the Julie Frye-Mueller controversy at the state Capitol was over?
It is not.
Sen. Tom Pischke, an ally of Frye-Mueller, said Thursday that he will ask Hughes County State’s Attorney Jessica LaMie to investigate whether the 27 senators who voted to suspend Frye-Mueller from the state Senate violated the law.
The law he cites makes it a class-2 misdemeanor to prevent or intimidate a legislator from attending or voting in any session of the chamber of which he or she is a member.
