Minnesota Republicans Cut Ties With Mark Olson.

KSTP Eyewitness News reports:

Minnesota House Republicans are breaking off ties with a fellow GOP legislator facing domestic abuse charges.

Republicans voted Thursday to oust seven-term Representative Mark Olson of Big Lake from the caucus. In short, they won't supply him with staff support or other services. Caucus spokeswoman Jodi Boyne says the move means -- quote -- "Basically, he's on his own."

Olson says he'll hang in there.
