“MN DFL Eighth Congressional District candidate Quinn Nystrom crossed a major line when she mocked Congressman Pete Stauber’s hearing loss and use of a hearing aid. Ms. Nystrom needs to apologize immediately for her behavior.
“Congressman Stauber’s hearing loss came as a result of serving the people of Minnesota for 23 years as a police officer. Nystrom showed her appreciation for that service by belittling him on social media for adjusting his hearing aid during a debate on Monday.
“Democrat Quinn Nystrom has zero chance of winning this race and has resorted to shameful bullying. To mock someone for a disability is out of bounds in Minnesota politics and she should be ashamed of her actions.”
