County expected to pay $28,000 to DFL for Stauber emails refusal

EXCLUSIVE

The St. Louis County Board is expected to authorize a $28,000 settlement to the DFL stemming from the county refusal to release emails from then congressional candidate and 5th District county commissioner Pete Stauber.

The Board is in Proctor today for their regular meeting. Proctor is in the 5th District.

The action brought by the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party against Kevin Z. Gray, in his capacity as County Administrator, and St. Louis County.

Under the proposed settlement, the DFL will release its claims against St. Louis County. he proposed settlement will allow the defendants to avoid the expense and risk associated with further litigation according to a Board letter from Kevin Z. Gray County Administrator and Mark S. Rubin County Attorney.

The issue began in October 2018 when the county was asked to release emails under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act. The County did release 22 emails that included some political strategizing, arrangements for an interview with the national Fox News channel.

Stauber’s email correspondence with the National Republican Congressional Committee was made public following a judge’s order filed in District Court in Duluth.
