ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Senate ethics committee Monday night told state Sen. Gretchen Hoffman to apologize for a misleading tweet about a fellow senator.


Hoffman, R-Vergas, must send an apology letter to Sen. Barb Goodwin, DFL-Columbia Heights, and tweet a link to the committee's report finding her at fault. She also must remove her original tweet from her Twitter account.

If the first-year senator complies, the committee will drop her case.
