Now when this happens to a Republican Congressman, he does the right thing and resigns. And if he hadn’t he would have been kicked out by the GOP Leadership for his actions.
South Dakota state senator who’s under investigation has resigned his current term, but plans to show up for the new session that starts in January.
Democratic state Senator Dan Sutton of Flandreau has been accused of acting improperly with a high-school student who served as a page during last winter’s legislative session. One of Sutton’s lawyers has said Sutton did nothing wrong.
In a letter dated today to Governor Rounds, Sutton resigned for the rest of this term but did not step down from the 2007 session.
Sutton was re-elected last week with 57 percent of the vote.
I guess that’s because it is okay to be a child predator in the Democratic Party (*cough* Gerry Studds *cough*).
