ST. PAUL (LEARFIELD) – The Minnesota Board of Medical Practice has dismissed the two allegations against State Senator and physician Scott Jensen (R-Chaska).
The original complaint accused Jensen of spreading misinformation about the number of COVID-19-related deaths reported in Minnesota and providing reckless advice in comparing COVID-19 to the flu.
“I’m gratified and I appreciate the fact that the board of medical practice was doing what they are charged to do,” said Jensen. “But, still, it hangs over your head like a black cloud until the decision is rendered.”
Jensen still believes the complaint may have been politically motivated.
“I think maybe whoever did this ended up doing a good thing in the long run, because we’ve had quite a conversation,” said Jensen. “Truly we’ll have to look at the board of medical practice and how wide are the guard rails in which they operate.”
Jensen says “cancel culture didn’t win this time.”
