Democrat Lawmaker’s Career Just Crumbled

Democrat Lawmaker’s Career Just Crumbled – He’s Forced to Resign for 1 Sick Reason

Dark pasts coming to light seems to be a growing trend among politicians. The number of elected leaders facing allegations of past misdeeds is a problem that keeps people doubting the integrity of the U.S. political system.

Polls show that politicians at all levels from national to state to local are not considered favorable people. Regular revelations about past incidents aren’t helping build confidence among the people.

Another Democrat saw his career crumble based on allegations of sexual misconduct from years ago. The alleged misdeed occurred at a college based in no other than Washington, D.C.

From The Daily Wire:
Arizona State Rep. Jevin Hodge submitted his letter of resignation on Tuesday, less than two months after he was appointed to the role.

On social media, Hodge released a statement of his resignation, saying he apologized “to those who may have been caused pain by my actions.” But Hodge said he “unequivocally” denied the allegations against him, though he noted that “now is not my time to lead.”

A previous statement from Hodge detailed the alleged incident that involved a “consensual romantic encounter with another student” when he was 21 and in college. The incident was in 2015 while he was a student at George Washington University (GWU). The woman, who was not named, later accused him of sexual misconduct through a complaint with the school but did not press charges to avoid any conflict with her status as a lawful permanent resident at the time.

Arizona political leadership said it was time to move on after Hodge’s situation.

“We have accepted Representative Hodge’s resignation, which he offered in good faith and out of respect for our caucus, and we are prepared to move forward with the important business of the state,” House Minority Leader Lupe Contreras (D) said in a statement.

The people need to move on from all politicians of this sort. The nation deserves better.

Key Takeaways:

  • Alleged sexual misconduct allegations forced an end to a Democrat’s career.
  • The Arizona lawmaker resigned over claims the incident occurred in 2015.
  • State party leadership accepted his apology and said it was time to move on.
