Continued: Dayton lashes out at new GOP inquiry on MNsure

Republicans wanted a chance to question MNsure’s former chief executive, April Todd-Malmlov, who repeatedly downplayed concerns about technical glitches at a time when she was getting internal and external reports showing widespread performance problems.

Legislative Auditor James Nobles, who is conducting a review of MNsure, said Todd-Malmlov has so far declined to discuss her stewardship of the agency. Nobles said he will take the unusual step of issuing a subpoena and using the courts to compel her testimony if she does not come in voluntarily for an interview.

“We think there are a lot of questions that need to be answered in a thorough and objective way,” Nobles said. “We want to hear her perspective. … She was at center stage, so to speak, and knows more than probably anybody.”

Todd-Malmlov, who resigned from MNsure in December after she refused to accept a demotion, did not respond to a request for comment.
