BUFFALO, Minn. - For more than a year, rumors and questions swirled about the abrupt end to the career of Minnesota's first female Senate Majority Leader, Amy Koch.

It seemed everyone had something to say about her affair with a Senate staffer and the way her once promising political career ended before she had even served a year as leader. But until recently, Koch herself remained mostly silent.

On KARE 11 News Thursday night, Koch opened up to Julie Nelson in her only television interview. She talked about how her own party handled the situation and where she hopes to go from here.
