And hopefully no take-backs, like Larry Craig. The Columbian:
State Rep. Richard Curtis, the apparent victim of an extortion scheme that has resulted in disclosure of raw details about his sexual behavior, will announce his resignation this afternoon, according to a Republican party official.
The official, who did not wish to be named, told The Columbian at 1 p.m. that Curtis would make a statement within a few hours and that it would include his resignation.
UPDATE: That was fast.
State Rep. Richard Curtis, whose claim of being the victim of an extortion scheme resulted in disclosure of raw details about his sexual behavior, has reigned from the Legislature, according to a statement from House Minority Leader Richard DeBolt, R-Chehalis.
“I am very disappointed by the news reports of the conduct by Rep. Curtis last week in Spokane,” the statement said. “After discussing this matter with House Republican leaders, he has submitted his resignation, which we feel is best for everyone involved.
“The troubling details continue to emerge, however, it has become clear that he can no longer effectively represent the constituents who elected him. We pray that Richard and his family have the strength and support they need to meet the personal challenges they face.”
