Ohio Lawmaker Quits After Having 'Inappropriate Conduct' With Man In His Office

https://www.yahoo.com/news/ohio-lawmaker-quits-having-apos-191641392.html

State Rep. Wes Goodman (R-Cardington) resigned Tuesday after a witness reported the incident to Ohio House chief of staff Mike Dittoe, according to the Columbus Dispatch. Specifics of the alleged incident are unclear.

House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) said he met with Goodman on Tuesday, and that the lawmaker “acknowledged and confirmed the allegations.”

“I was alerted to details yesterday afternoon regarding his involvement in inappropriate behavior related to his state office,” Rosenberger said Wednesday. “It became clear that his resignation was the most appropriate course of action for him, his family, the constituents of the 87th House District and this institution.”


I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service.

Looks like another special election is coming up!

😂 I relish these stories. Sweet bigot justice served when staff walks in on you with a _____ in your _____.

May we all live happily ever after.

So presumably be hard for him to continue in politics after it became known he was actually interested in men.
