Minnesota: Red Wing mayor facing recall threats over conflict of interest clais

Red Wing's newly elected Mayor Dennis Egan is facing recall threats after it was revealed that he was also recently hired as a lobbyist for frac sand companies.

Minnesota is a malfeasance standard (Judicial recall) state, so there's a good chance that this (apparently legal) arrangement won't meet the misdeeds hurdle and be able to get on the ballot. Previous reports have noted that Minnesota has never had a recall election get to the ballot.
