A Minnesota legislator was charged with an ethics violation for making a remark taken to be an anti-Semitic slur on the floor of the state House of Representatives. During a Feb. 23 debate about the kind of prayer used to open House sessions, Rep. Arlon Lindner, a Republican from suburban Minneapolis, told Rep. Michael Paymar, a Jewish Democrat from St. Paul, “Don’t impose your irreligious left views on me.”
