Jeremy Munson is a Far-Right Troll, Not a Serious Candidate
DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement about Representative Jeremy Munson’s announced run for Congress:
“Jeremy Munson embodies the worst of the modern Republican Party. Munson is not a serious candidate for Congress, he’s a troll and an election-denying, anti-science, right-wing extremist.
“Instead of getting things done for Minnesotans in the State House, Munson spent his time doing outrageous things for attention, like trying to give half of Minnesota to a neighboring state. Munson’s proposal to send Dr. Fauci to prison is proof that he would pull the same absurd publicity stunts in Congress. Minnesota does not need our own Marjorie Taylor Greene, and that’s exactly what Jeremy Munson would be if elected.”
- Jeremy Munson is a troll who cares more about lobbing bombs than legislating.
- Munson proposed giving more than half of Minnesota, including pieces of the Congressional District he’s running for, to South Dakota.
- Munson could not even get along with his fellow Republicans in the Minnesota House, so he and three colleagues broke off from the House Republican Caucus to form the New House Republican Caucus.
- Munson signed on to a proposal to impeach Governor Walz for his COVID safety measures, despite similar measures being implemented by both Republican and Democratic governors across America.
- Jeremy Munson is a right-wing extremist.
- Despite no credible evidence of election fraud, Munson signed a letter urging states to decertify the 2020 elections if fraud was somehow discovered.
- Jeremy Munson spoke at the January 6th, 2021 “Storm the Capitol” rally in Minnesota. During this rally, another speaker promised “We are going to fight, we are going to go down. There’s going to be casualties.”
- On January 6th, 2022, Munson felt it was appropriate to joke about the assault on the U.S. Capitol.
- Munson has said he doubts the legitimacy of the 2020 elections.
- Munson opposed a plan to test students in the Mankato area for COVID-19 before they went back to schools because he was worried more tests would lead to more known cases of COVID, which would cause schools to be closed.
- Munson has attacked the world-renowned Mayo Clinic for requiring its healthcare workers to be vaccinated against a deadly pandemic.
