Tom Lyden of the FOX 9 Investigators

Quid Pro Quo

St. Paul City Councilman Dai Thao fires his mayoral campaign manager, Angela Marlow, hours after The FOX 9 Investigators uncover a text message from Marlow to a lobbyist, that appears to be a solicitation for a bribe. Within 24 hours a criminal investigation is begun by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) and the St. Paul Mayor's race is sent into turmoil during caucuses. The lobbyist, Sarah Clarke, breaks her silence two days later. Stories originally broadcast April 29, April 30, and May 1, 2017.
