Breaking news: Idaho State Senator John McGee has resigned from the Idaho State Legislature over allegations of sexual misconduct with a female congressional liaison.
News link to the Idaho Statesman newspaper:
Idaho Senator John McGee peed in his own Cheerios starting last year on Father's Day when he was pulled over for drunk driving. He had broken into a SUV with a boat trailer and tried to drive it away. He was so inebriated he jackknifed the vehicle trying to back it out. He left a party staggering drunk and apparently wandered for 3 unaccountable hours before trying to steal the truck.
The female staffer was not a minor, but the allegations seem pretty serious-- he had what was apparently an intense closed-door meeting with the state GOP talking heads and when it was over, he decided to resign on his own (they say).
He has a wife and two kids, at least for now. He was the chairman of one of our county GOP parties, and used to be the president of the board of trustees for College of Idaho. He was canned from that position by the College president after the DUIs, to some protest from other trustees and alums, but I bet they're all breathing a sigh of relief now after dodging today's bullet, Neo-in-the-Matrix style.
Ahhh, family values.
