The assistant attorney general who talked to MPR's Tim Pugmire last week about problems in the office of Attorney General Lori Swanson has been placed on administrative leave.
According to Eric Black at MinnPost, to whom Ann Lawler also spoke, the letter of discipline called Lawler out by demanding proof of ethical lapses by Swanson, as she charges.
Lawler was one of three assistant attorneys general trying to organize into a union. Lawler said she and her colleagues believe a union would protect them if they speak out about workplace problems.
