LINCOLN, Neb.(Associated Press)— A Nebraska state legislator known for his blunt, occasionally offensive manner, who was fined for having cybersex using a state computer, resigned Wednesday after he retweeted a comment that implied participants at a women’s march were too unattractive to be sexually assaulted.
Republican Sen. Bill Kintner announced at a news conference in the state Capitol that he would step down from the seat he has held since 2012. He made the announcement less than an hour before Nebraska lawmakers were scheduled to debate whether to expel him—the first time the legislature would have taken such an action in recent history.
Kintner said he received many calls from constituents urging him to stay, and that he was resigning even though he was worried it would “be hailed as a victory to the progressive and aggressive liberal movement.”
