As we rejoin the Emo Senator, Southern Minnesota's most beloved online telenovela, the fickle Belle of Waseca County has told the County News that Parry has no plans at bid for Senate Majority seat, while a GOP source told Fox News 9 reporter Jeff Goldberg that Parry is considering a bid for the seat.
Fans of the Emo Senator have long savored the whiplash joys of following the impetuous beauty and novice senator.
But the scriptwriter frowns her forehead at discovering yet another wrinkle in the plot, one that neither Olay sales at Walmart nor Christmas bonus boxes at Herbergers' cosmetics counters might solve. Current Parry congressional spokester and Vikings stadium lackey Ben Golnik delivers one narrative about the Dark Lord's departure from the Emo Senator's congressional vision quest, while our hero tells a different tale about the waning affections of STB (Spawn of Turd Blossom).
Brodkorb left the congressional campaign after being dismissed from his positions as senate majority comm director and executive assistant Amy Koch. Koch resigned after being confronted about her affair with a male senate staffer. The two events have been linked in rumors and the City Pages.
Ben Golnik, an adviser to Parry's campaign, said Brodkorb's departure was his own decision. Golnik said that the campaign had collectively sat down and discussed the troubles at the Capitol when Brodkorb made the decision. [emphasis added]
Golnik did not provide any explanation on why Brodkorb chose to resign.
He said nobody has yet been slated to fill Brodkorb's place in the campaign, but he said Parry has plenty of friends and confidants to assist him.
"We'll continue the campaign as usual. We'll continue to draw contrast between Parry and [incumbent Congressman] Tim Walz," said Golnik.
Parry said he received an email from Brodkorb that stated he was withdrawing from the senator’s congressional campaign, but Parry would not comment on the scandal allegations.
Perhaps Golnik was only thinking of the sensitive senator's feelings when he gave that spin to the young reporter in New Ulm. After all, it's difficult to believe that the campaign sat down together, given the timeline of STB's dismissal by the Senate. (See MPR's post here and Jon Tevlin's column here).
The jilting might have been worse, however, had Brodkorb tweeted the break-up, sandwiching the news between his incisive movie reviews. Those who think that the Dark Lord has no honor need look no further than his twitter stream to see the true delicacy of his nature.
