5. Who is Paying th Price for Mark Olson's Abuse?... His Victims.
http://dumpmarkolson.blogspot.com/2006/11/sherburne-cit...

Heidi Olson said she has no comment on her husband Marks arrest on domestic assault charges but that she may choose to issue a public statement once the case is settled.

As the wife of a public figure, I know I have to deal with the media, she said Wednesday. But I was totally unprepared for the invasion that followed once the story came out.

Olson, a public health nurse for Wright County and mother of five, said she and her children were forced to leave their home because media representatives from the Twin Cities invaded her Big Lake Township property.

I find it disturbing that my right to privacy was not respected, she said. My address and pictures of my house were everywhere at a time when people now know I am here alone. I find that very scary. We have been locking things up tightly around here but it does make me nervous and it worries my children.


Heidi Olson did the right thing and she and her children are the ones paying the penalty.

Mark Olson, by contrast has gotten the kid-glove treatment by the major media. The Star Tribune and the Minnesota Daily editorial boards called for the resignation of Chris Stewart, just-elected to the to the Minneapolis School Board, but has not called for Mark Olson's resignation.

What was Chris Stewart's "crime"? He authored a satirical website.
