John Maddening

Of course, he doesn’t have any actual names of anyone who is allegedly supplying him with this information.

As for Capitol Security, this is the far more measured email they sent out to MDA employees:


To all,

In todays update, Minnesota State Patrol reports that State Troopers from Ohio and Nebraska have been deployed to work with and augment Minnesota State Troopers along with Minnesota National Guard on the Capitol Complex. This is being done to replace staff that are being deployed elsewhere. It is not a response to information indicating a heightened threat to the complex.

You may see an increase in foot patrols by Troopers and National Guard today and in the coming days. This is intended to help security staff be more familiar with the Capitol Complex buildings and grounds. Also, State Patrol and Capitol Security will now have a 24/7 presence in all state buildings.

As previously reported, traffic control barriers are in place. Entrance to the Capitol Complex is at Cedar and Sherburne (see attached map) and employees should wear their MDA badge so it is visible at all times while on Complex.
