UMLC Submits Data Request to Attorney General on Behalf of Dr. Scott Jensen
The request seeks more information on the weaponization of the office for political purposes
Golden Valley, MN – Today, the Upper Midwest Law Center announced a formal data request on behalf of Dr. Scott Jensen to Minnesota’s Office of the Attorney General (OAG) for communications relating to or mentioning Scott Jensen.
Dr. Scott Jensen has practiced family medicine for decades in Minnesota. Over the course of his medical career, Dr. Jensen never received a complaint against him from the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice (MBMP). That is, until he was a sitting State Senator and eventual candidate for Governor of Minnesota. Since then, he has faced multiple complaints and investigations by the MBMP, all resulting in his exoneration.
“We are committed to ensuring elected officials and government agencies are not using their position of power to punish their political opponents,” said Doug Seaton, President of the Upper Midwest Law Center. “Fighting the weaponization of government against individual citizens is at the cornerstone of our mission as a public interest law firm. We fully expect Attorney General Ellison and his staff to comply with our request.”
The data request submitted to the Office of the Attorney General asks for all documents with the phrase “Scott Jensen” and all documents where Jensen is the subject of the data, from March 2020 through the present. Under state law, the Office has 10 business days to fulfill the request.
