The Minnesota DFL has filed a complaint against State Rep. Greg Davids with the Office of Administrative Hearings for false claims he made in political attacks against four DFL state representatives. In four nearly identical letters to the editor, Rep. Davids attacked Rep. Jay McNamar (Elbow Lake), Rep. Tim Faust (Hinckley), Rep. Shannon Savick (Wells), and Rep. Joe Radinovich (Crosby), falsely claiming each voted for a $3.7 billion tax increase.



In his political attack, Rep. Davids claimed each voted yes on Gov. Mark Dayton’s now outdated tax proposal. In truth, the vote he referenced was on a procedural motion to move the bill from one committee to another where it could receive more public input.



“Representative Davids is the longest serving Republican in the House and he knows the difference between a procedural motion and a vote on bill,” said DFL Chairman Ken Martin. “This is politics at its worst and a disservice to the public, who has a right to know the facts about what their representative has actually voted for and voted against.”
