Statement on Chris Kluwe
January 2, 2014 | Updated: January 4, 2014 »
This afternoon Senator Scott Dibble released a statement about claims in an article authored by former Minnesota Viking Chris Kluwe about his activism in support of marriage equality for same-sex couples and being fired by the Minnesota Vikings.
"Kluwe’s allegations raise very serious concerns about the culture within the Minnesota Vikings organization. As a business partner of the state of Minnesota, we have strong expectations that the team uphold the values of tolerance and equality that we all share. I am encouraged to some degree by the team's statement in response, but the charges warrant a thorough investigation. If shown to be true, decisive action must be taken."
