Sam Solon
ST. PAUL (AP) -- Longtime state Sen.Sam Solon, a son of Greek immigrants who worked for three decades to bring state projects and money to his home town of Duluth, died Friday of liver cancer.He was 70.
Solon was the second-most senior member of the Senate and known for his soft-spoken style.
He had been a junior high school social studies teacher before he was elected to the House in 1970.He was elected to the Senate two years later and held the post until his death.
Solon apologized to the Senate in 1996 after he pleaded guilty to telecommunications fraud for letting his ex-wife make $2,430 in taxpayer-paid phone calls on his Senate line.That admission followed an incident three years earlier when Solon let a lobbyist make $3,000 in such calls.
The troubles led to a rare Senate reprimand, but Solon was still re-elected.
