WI State Rep Busted For Sexual Misconduct – Says Charges Are a Distraction From Larger State Issues
Now we know what they do when they’re not at work…
Wisconsin State Rep. Gordon Hintz told reporters today that his arrest for sexual misconduct is a distraction from larger issues facing the state.
The Chicago Tribune reported:
State Rep. Gordon Hintz says he is willing to take responsibility for his actions after he was cited this month for sexual misconduct.
Records say the Oshkosh Democrat was arrested Feb. 10. The 37-year-old was accused of violating a City of Appleton ordinance of touching or offering to touch sexual parts.
In a statement e-mailed to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Hintz says, “I am willing to take responsibility for my actions.” But he says he is concerned his “personal situation is distracting from the much more important issue facing the state.” Thousands of demonstrators are protesting daily at the Wisconsin state Capitol over a budget repair bill.
Appleton police say the citation was issued in conjunction with an ongoing investigation of Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor in Appleton. Messages left with Hintz’s office and home were not immediately returned.
The democrat’s arrest is connected to an Appleton prostitution sting.
