Calls grow for Minn. state rep. to step down amid scandals

John Thompson to resign after claiming a police officer of pulling him because of his race and over domestic abuse accusations. The chaos for Thompson began when a video released by the Saint Paul Police Department from the Fourth of July showed the officer telling Thompson he was pulled over for not having a front license plate and for how he sped off from a light.
