Oklahoma state Rep. Dan Kirby resigns after sexual harassment accusation

State Rep. Dan Kirby abruptly resigned Friday night after three days of public outrage over the secretive settlement paid to a fired legislative assistant who had accused him of sexual harassment.

The resignation is effective Dec. 31.

"Recent events have caused a situation where my continuing in office would be such a distraction that I could not serve my constituents in the manner they deserve," Kirby, R-Tulsa, wrote Speaker-elect Charles McCall. "I believe that a resignation is in the best interest of the district, the House of Representatives and the state of Oklahoma."

Kirby, a real estate agent, was first elected in 2008 and last re-elected in November. He serves House District 75, representing residents in east Tulsa and Broken Arrow.
