On Feb. 4, 2023, the Chippewa County Republican Party voted unanimously on a resolution to show support for Dr. Scott Jensen regarding the current accusations against him from the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice.

From the letter: If your current oil or propane heating system is nearing the end of life, it seems worthwhile to consider converting to a heat pump.
From the letter: These bills violate our Second Amendment, they make criminals out of hard-working taxpaying Minnesotans and do nothing to help enforcement of the laws we already have enacted, do nothing to promote prosecution, and do nothing to apply sentencing guidelines.
From the letter: At least the work on the new apartment building downtown is progressing nicely.

Dr. Scott Jensen, a former Republican candidate for Minnesota Governor, is once again being investigated by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice and the Minnesota Attorney General's office.

Attorney General Keith Ellison and the Minnesota Medical Board are attempting to take away Dr. Jensen's medical license.

Four previous investigations against him were dropped. Dr. Jensen has indicated he will be meeting with the Board and the attorney general's office over the next two to three months for this investigation.

The Chippewa County GOP are on record saying "we unanimously support Dr. Jensen in his fight to retain his license."


Four other attempts failed and now Gov. Tim Walz and Ellison are spending more Minnesota tax dollars attacking a doctor and his practice with what appears to be suspect accusations that are more of a political agenda than a review from the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice.

All Minnesota citizens should be very concerned with this kind of activity — the Chippewa County GOP is.
