Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN), February 5, 2002, Tuesday
Mee Moua got a standing ovation Monday after being sworn in as a new member
of the Minnesota Senate, becoming the first Hmong legislator in the country.
Moua, a DLFer, won in a special election Jan. 29. Her first order of business? A
vote to designate Minnesota's official tartan and dress tartan.
