Olson Booted From His Caucus

This morning, Rep. Mark Olson, who faces domestic abuse charges from an incident with his wife, was ejected from the GOP House Caucus. The decision by the other members was unanimous. It is now highly unlikely that Olson will remain in the House rather than resigning.

The GOP is not screwing around here, doing everything possible to distance itself from Olson and his (alleged) conduct. As it says in Polinaut's post, House Minority Leader Marty Seifert has said that Rep. Olson should be removed from the Legislature if he's convicted, and the DFL majority will undoubtedly oblige him. I have to say that I've been fairly impressed with the GOP's handling of this matter, though on the other hand it is a little easier when you're dealing with a heavily conservative district.

You're impressed with their handling of the Mark Olson affair?

Why did it take them a month to expel him?

Probably because there is little official business going on, and while I have no idea how often their caucus meets it can't be that often.
