Minnesota Lawmaker Drops Re-Election Bid After Daughter Claims He Molested Her | HuffPost

A Minnesota state representative has abandoned his re-election bid after learning that Minnesota Public Radio News was working with his daughter on a story about her accusations that he inappropriately touched her for years.
In a statement on Friday, state Rep. Jim Knoblach (R) said he learned last week that his 23-year-old daughter, Laura Knoblach, contacted MPR with the accusations, which led him to end his campaign for the Minnesota House of Representatives.
She first publicly accused her father of behaving inappropriately toward her in a December 2016 Facebook post, which has since been deleted. In that post, obtained by MPR News, she said she was “molested as a child and young adult” by her father.
Laura Knoblach, who was a student athlete at the University of Colorado at Boulder, also accused her family members of threatening her and coercing her “into silence about it for almost 15 years.”
MPR News on Friday published a damning report that shed light on her claims of abuse and her family’s attempts to keep her quiet.
On Friday, Jim Knoblach said the allegations were false and described his daughter as estranged from the family. He noted that the accusations were investigated and dismissed by Sherburne County.
“I and other family members have made repeated attempts to reconcile with her in recent years, but she has refused,” he said.

The Party of Family Values is on one hell of a roll, yes?

It's just sad that it takes sexually abused women to drain the swamp.
The swamp things shouldn't even be in our government... Good on Ms. Ford stepping up to help drain it!
Well, they've been your government for at least 50 years. Trump is the last best chance to stop it... As imperfect as he is.

No, the Ford woman is a counterattack, a false accusation to stop the swamp from draining... It's too late for that. When you are talking about the abuse scandals, I doubt you really want to know just how pervasive the problems are.

Riiiight Mr. Projection, that's like saying Jeffery Dahmer is the perfect dinner date for a gay man.
Ask yourself this, If Brett Kavanaugh was really innocent why isn't he on the phone with the President
demanding an FBI investigation immediately in order to clear his name?

Because you don't give legitimacy to false accusations, you let the false accusations burn themselves out as irrelevant distractions.

Otherwise, you don't know who the Dahmers are in your analogy. Hint: look to people who hang statues of Dahmers posed corpses as art.
