An anti-gay lawmaker, Wes Goodman, has resigned from his position after he was caught having sex with another man in his office in the United States of America.
The Republican state legislator for Ohio is a married man (married to a woman), who has backed several anti-LGBT groups in his career.
He was however seen having sexual intercourse with another man in his office.
In his resignation letter, the Republican state legislator for Ohio apologized to the state and his constituents for not being able to serve them due to his misconduct.
“That has been true for me, and 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.
“For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry. As I move onto the next chapter of my life, I sincerely ask for privacy for myself, my family, and my friends,” Mr. Goodman said.
In confirming the resignation, House Speaker Republican Cliff Rosenberger said in a statement that, “I was alerted to details yesterday afternoon regarding his involvement in inappropriate behaviour related to his state office.
“I met with him later in the day where he acknowledged and confirmed the allegations. 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.”
