MN Governor Calls On BLM Activist State Rep. To Resign After Domestic Violence Past Comes To Light

By

The Minnesota state representative who allegedly lied about being racially profiled during a traffic stop on Independence Day is now facing calls from Minnesota Democratic lawmakers and the governor to resign due to a slew of recently-uncovered domestic violence allegations.

While searching for information regarding Minnesota State Representative John Thompson’s (DFL-St. Paul) state of residency, KMSP stumbled upon four domestic violence cases involving the lawmaker.

The incidents, which allegedly occurred between 2003 and 2010, involved accusations that Thompson choked, hit, and punched multiple women, KMSP reported.

Some of the alleged incidents occurred in front of children.

The first case allegedly took place in Superior, Wisconsin in October of 2003, KMSP reported.

In that instance, Thompson was accused of hitting his girlfriend in her face in a grocery store parking lot in front of her five-year-old daughter.

The victim said she and her child were homeless and refused to cooperate with the investigation, KMSP reported.

Thompson fled the scene and went on the fight with police when he was located.

He ended up pleading guilty to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct, as well as resisting arrest.

Thompson was arrested in August of 2004 for allegedly strangling the same girlfriend with a phone cord, KMSP reported.
