Discount mulberry sale york Outlet Lawmakers tell Fansler to turn in keys
“Our majority coalition, in very short order, made the bold decision to ask for his resignation,” Edgmon told reporters. “We did that knowing that the criminal charges have yet to be filed in this event, and that we certainly respect his constitutional rights, and his right to privacy. As of today, Tuesday morning, we have not gotten a response from Rep. Fansler.”
Several times during the news conference, Edgmon used the word “yet,” not “if,” to describe whether Fansler would be charged criminally. Edgmon explained that the woman’s story sounded so credible that he thought criminal charges were likely.
But despite taking up most of the questions of a press conference that also featured discussion of education funding, Edgmon said the Fansler matter wasn’t too distracting for the Legislature.
“Distractions are a part of this business,” Edgmon said. “They come, they go. But the committees if you look at the committee schedule are very active and we have a lot of things going on as they normally would be going on, and so our eye is very much on the ball going forward.”
